These 3,500 steps built in perfect symmetry all lead to just one place – Yettio

Chand Baori was built during the 9th century and is one of the largest and deepest stepwells in the world. The architectural beauty in the Rajasthani village Abhaneri has over 3,500 steps which descend over thirteen floors and twenty metres in perfect symmetry to a small well at the bottom.

Located 100kms from the ‘pink city’ Jaipur in eastern Rajasthan’s arid desert, the steps were built by King Chanda over a thousand years ago in order to provide a water source all year round.

Although the well is not used anymore, it’s attracts many tourists from around the globe who come to admire the unique geometrical pattern. The steps encircle the well from three sides, while the fourth side is made up of a series of arches, sculptures and balconies.

The structure wasn’t just a place to collect water, which often filled up during monsoon season, it also provided a comfortable meeting spot with a temperature at least 5 degrees cooler than ground level.
