There are many tourist attractions in India which have love stories behind them (like Taj Mahal) or some tragic tales, but the Adalaj Vav in Gujarat is a unique site which has all of it.
Love & respect of a Queen for her King & people, and a tragic end which the locals still remember.
On Day 2 of my trip to Gujarat, I decided to start the day with a voyage to Adalaj village, 18 km from Ahmedabad and 3-4 km from Gandhinagar (Capital of Gujarat).
Adalaj Vav is the second stepwell site I visited after Dada Harir Vav and is the 1st stepwell where I have seen drinkable water. There isn’t any entry ticket for this stepwell, but nevertheless, this Vav is well preserved.
