Its one of the finest of the Gujarati stepwell

A stepwell, as indicated by its name, is a type of well that allows access to the water level by descending a set of steps.

These artifacts bear resemblance to those found during the time of the Indus Valley Civilization, which thrived from 3300 BCE to 1300 BCE.

The magnificient Adalaj Stepwell were made around 600 A.D.

Later this trend spread to Rajasthan and further up the northern regions of the country. 

Adalaj, initially a village, transformed into a census town in 2001. It is governed by the gram panchayat, named after the town itself.
