Adalaj Stepwell (Adalaj ni Vav) Tours

Adalaj Stepwell (Adalaj ni Vav)
This striking Hindu water building located in the quiet village of Adjalaj was constructed in 1499 and stretches five stories deep. Built by a Muslim king for Queen Rani Roopba, this top religious attraction was once the site of holy rituals and brightly colored festivals, and served as not only relief from droughts, but a destination for saints and holy pilgrims. 

Travelers who visit the Adalaj Stepwell (Adalaj ni Vav) will get not only an up-close look at Gujarat culture and tradition, but also a taste of iconic Indo-Islamic architecture, complete with ornate carvings, detailed decorations and nods to religious gods and deities.

Practical Info

The stepwell is located about 18 kilometers north of the city of Ahmedabad, approximately 5 kilometers from the capital of Gujarat.  The city is accessible by rail and roadway, making it an easy visit for travelers. Locals say early morning crowds are sparse, making it an ideal time to visit.

Walk through Adalaj Vav

Walk through Adalaj Vav

star-5
Thanks to arid regions in western India, we see lot of stunning stepwells in the state of Gujarat and Rajasthan, which were built with the intention to store rainwater for a longer period of time. Of all these stepwells, the one at Adalaj is of unique importance. The stepwell’s intrinsic carving is not the only thing spectacular about it, however the tale behind its creation is equally spectacular! Built in 1499, the vav incorporates design elements from Hindu as well as Islamic architecture and is the only Vav with three different entrances that leads to main well. The beauty is still intact and the intrinsic details of the carvings have endured the time so beautifully that it still gives the feeling of amazement.
