Due to the arid conditions, western India is home to some stunning stepwells, especially the sates of Gujarat and Rajasthan, which were built with the intention to store rainwater for a longer period of time. Of all these stepwells, the one at Adalaj is of unique importance. The stepwell’s intricate carvings are not the only things spectacular about it, the tale behind its creation is equally spectacular!
