Photographer's Note

Certainly, by the 15th century, Gujarat had amassed the largest number of competent stone masons and sculptors in all of India. Construction activity was extensive and work was plentiful. Here is an example of a doorway to one of the four shrines - that on the northeast corner of the first landing that displays their high level of skill. The care and attention devoted to these features of the vav is singularly amazing and qualifies the Adalaj as probably the most outstanding of all of the vavs, anywhere in India.
