Yes, you’ve read correct Abhaneri is the largest stepwell in the whole world. As stepwells are translated as ‘Baoris’Â Â so this stepwell is also known asÂ Chand baori(bavdi).Â Located in the Abhaneri village of Dausa district(Rajasthan) and at a distance of around 80-90 kms from Jaipur, this stepwell has got his name from the name of King chanda.
Like many other tourist attractions in India, it is estimated that foreign tourists are more attracted to this place. It is not only the largest one in the worldÂ but also is considered among the beautiful ones. So tourists(both National and International) come here to visit this beautiful heritage place. With 35000 triangular steps on 13 levels, this baori is around 20m deep.
Alike many other ancient stepwells this one also has aÂ temple nearby itÂ built forÂ Harshat Mata. It is considered that Harshat mata is the mata(Goddess) of Joy and happiness.Â
