Dada Hari Stepwell
Dada Hari Stepwell: The stepwell is a masterpiece in water architecture. It is situated 17 kms. north of Ahmedabad. The stepwell at the village of Adalaj is another fine example of this magnificent architectural form. Adalaj Vav is richly carved, every pillar and wall surface covered with leaves and flowers, birds and fishes and friezes of ornamental designs. The five storeyed Octagonal shaft - wonderful sculptures of a king seated on a stool beneath a parasol with two bearers, gods, goddesses, dancing maidens, musicians, birds, animals, leaves one spellbound. From the steps of the well one can literary fell the presence of the royal ladies peeping outside the intricalely carved Jharukhas. An ideal retreat from the scorching heat in summers.
