Foto Friday – The Chand Baori step well Rajasthan, India

This step well is located opposite the Harshat Mata Temple, constructed in 800 c. and is one of the deepest and largest step wells in India. It was built in the 9th century and has 3500 narrow steps in 13 stories and is 100 feet deep. It was the most amazing sight to come across in the middle of rural India, literally in the middle of some fields.

The main trouble in attempting to get a photograph that really showed off the true size and scale of the structure was in getting a wide enough angle of shot to pay justice to it! I failed, but I still like this shot! You can however get some idea of the scale of the place from the tiny people seen wandering around the top levels.
