Dada Harir ni Vav
Step-wells of Gujarat are well known, and your trip to the city won’t be justified without a visit to Dada Harir ni Vav, which is accessible by local modes of transport. The more famous step-wells such as Adalaj Vav and Rani ki Vav in Patan are best visited on longer trips to the city.
Dada Harir ni Vav opens as early as 9am. And if you make it to this destination before that time, you could spend some time at the mosque of Sultani, which is behind the step-well.
Over 500 years old, the step-well, made of sandstone in the style of Solanki architecture, is five stories deep and features an octagonal plan on the top. Inside the well, vertical pillars and platforms are stacked one upon another, and horizontally, the views unite as the step-well deepens from one end to the other, lending itself to beautiful perspectives.
