Abhaneri Stepwell
Abhaneri – Abhaneri is prominent for ‘Baoris’, step wells which were invented by the natives to
harvest rain water. 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.
Harshat Mata Temple, dedicated to the goddess Harshat Mata, serves as the other tourist attraction
of Abhaneri. Razed during the invasion of India by Islamic rulers in the 10th century, the remains of
