Photographer's Note

Chand Baori is a well preserved stepped well in the village of Abhaneri on the Agra-Jaipur road in Rajasthan in India. It is situated some 90 km from Jaipur but needs a greater detour from the main road. Chand Baori was built in the 9th century by king Chanda and was intended to hold back as much water as possible as Rajasthan is rather arid.
In the village of Abhaneri the seasoned traveler is met by the local population with great curiosity as not many tourists find their way thereand we had the distinct feeling that our local driver wasn't much at ease during our visit.
