Abhaneri is prominent for ‘Baoris‘, step wells which were invented by the natives to harvest rainwater. These tanks were used as cool places of retreat and as water reservoirs during parched times of the year. Chand Baori is the most popular of the wells in the region, and it is one of India’s deepest and largest. There are three ways to reach the water using the steps, which are divided into stories. This colossal, delicately carved well is located in front of the Harshat Mata Temple. It was a ritual to wash the hands and feet at the well before visiting the adjoining temple.
You will be picked up from your preferred location or hotel in Jaipur in an air-conditioned car to proceed towards Abhaneri.
On reaching this village, you will see Chand Baori step-well which is considered as one of the largest and deepest step wells in India. It was constructed in the 9th century and has 3500 narrow steps in thirteen stories and is hundred feet deep. After this you will visit Harshat Mata temple, which is regarded as the goddess of happiness who spreads joy to the entire village. The ruined images in the temple indicate that this temple was actually dedicated to Lord Vishnu.
After exploring all the major tourist attractions in Abhaneri, you will be transferred to the car. Drive back to Jaipur.
On arrival at Jaipur, you will be dropped at your desired location with beautiful memories of your journey.
