See an impressive historical feat of engineering and design at Chand Baori (Step well), a stepwell consisting of 3,500 narrow steps descending over 13 stories into the earth. Built sometime between 800 and 900 CE, the well reaches 30 m (98 ft) into the ground, making it one of the largest and deepest structures of its kind in the country. Such wells served for irrigation and water storage purposes, and frequently had additional social and spiritual functions. With the temperature markedly cooler at the bottom of the stepwell than at the level of the ancient city, locals would convene at the foot of the structure when temperatures were particularly intense.

Chand Baori (Step well) reviews
How pretty is this place? We were awestruck by the architecture and the massiveness of this baori. Though this is quite a distance from Jaipur or the main city, but I thought it was worth the visit... more »
Excellent place to visit on the way to Jaipur Agra highway. Amaz to see how anciant people use to store water. more »
Excellent step well and probably one of the best preserved in all India. It is easy to find in the village and parking can be found locally. The step well is a very interesting place with lots of informative boards around explaining the history. A great location for photos. Be aware that you cannot go down the steps to the water. It is fenced off at the top.
Government needs to clean up well, apart from this missing direction as where is temple and where is well. They charge 25rs for 15and above. They take card payments also. Nothing historical information is posted at the site. You need to read wikipedia's document. This is one of the largest and biggest step well. Known for its appearance in movies and spectacular architecture.
