Summer delight

Not really for humid weather, Adalaj is a summer delight to experience the coolness of the space whilst its hot outside. Great place for perspective drawing and architect study.

We took a taxi out there (don't even think about the train if you're not fluent) and it was worth it. (back to that later) In the middle of the day, not too many people and it was breath taking to think about how old it is. The guards were sort of on it as far as stopping people from... More

This takes you through the history of Ahmedabad where Maharajas of Gujarat used to have these specially designed wells for the water source.

One of the best example to see beauty of ancient architectural marvel... Wonder how they people could have made it without any modern tools and technology. There are plenty of such step-wells across Gujarat, Rajasthan and in entire India. This one is built around 1400 AD had beautiful story / history behind the same. Must visit for history buffs...
