Photographer's Note

This magnificent step-well ("Baori" in local language) named "Chand (Moon) Baori" was built by rulars of this small town "Abha Nagari" (now called Abhaneri) during 8th-9th century. It means that it is almost 1300 years old now - probably one of the oldest step-wells in such a good shape.

Almost 20 meters deep, this step-well is sqaure on plan - with multi-storeyed pillared verandahs (pavillion ) with entrance on the north. It has double flight of steps - with 13 levels - on the remaining three sides - south, east and west.
