About Adalaj Stepwell

Built by a Muslim ruler in 1499, Adalaj Stepwell in Ahmedabad is an intricately carved water reservoir. The structure is one of the best examples of the Persian-Muslim influenced architecture with a mix of Hindu architecture. Its architecture, sculpture, and carvings depict the story of its origin. This five-storey structure is also a spiritual refuge and not just a cultural and functional space. Researchers say that the ambiance inside the well is six degrees cooler than the outside. Another remarkable feature of the place is that of the many stepwells in Gujarat, Adalaj Stepwell in Ahmedabad is only one with three entrance stairs. Moreover, all three stairs meet at the first storey, which is set underground in a huge square platform. The architecture and design of this Indo-Islamic architecture are really spectacular. The walls of the well are carved by ornamentation depicting the mythological scenes from everyday scenes of women adorning themselves, churning buttermilk, dancers accompanied by musicians.
