Adalaj Ni Vav (Stepwell of Adalaj)



I visited the Adalaj Stepwell, one of the very few archaelogical sites preserved in and around Ahmedabad.

When I photographed the site, I was more into capturing the intricate designs carved on the walls and the symmetry flaunted by the monument.

What puzzles me is the motive of creating such royal stepwell with so many galleries. I'm sure it wasn't meant only for the purpose of water storage.
