Chand Baori

Built back in the 10th century, the incredible well of Chand Baori, India was a practical solution to the water problem in the area. The arid climate forced the locals to dig deep for a dependable water source, one that would last throughout an entire year. Chand Baori well is 30 meters deep, it has 13 floors and 3,500 steps.

  3. Amazing. I'm wondering if there was a little political embelishment. A simple shaft, and lifting system would have done the same thing.

  7. Yep, Peter, it does a bit. You walk up it sideways but I'm still taking the chairlift. Reminds of the Tomb Raider game.

  9. i'd gladly go for a sky burial, me.
    one has to die, so why not give your body back to nature : 5000 years ago it was always that way
    (sky burial is a little bit diff than tower of silence)
    animals have rights too (if that means eating me : why not)
