Photographer's Note

The Chand Baori stepwell, located about 100 km east of Jaipur on the Agra-Jaipur Road. Stepwells were built to provide water through dry seasons and potentially leisure purposes as well.

The Chand Baori was built by King Chand in the 9th century A.D. On three sides it is surrounded by approximately 3500 narrow steps descending in 13 levels nearly 100 feet into the ground. The fourth side consists of a series of rooms for the royals.
