This baoli is most popular as an architectural delights as it combines Indo-Islamic designs. The structure was designed by a skillful architect of those times who went by the name Kifayat-ullah. It was commissioned by Nawab Asif-ud-daula to serve the famine stricken population in neighbouring areas. Royal guests who have visited this have explained it in their travelogues for the secret views it offers to those who stayed here. When visitors stand at the entrance of this structure, it shows a colourful reflection in the waters of the well.
