Time plays a game which makes sure that we all become a part of history one day. The same game has been played with a historical site which was used to collect rainwater and also acted as a popular social gathering place for women’s in Indian villages or cities.
I’m talking about the Stepwells of India, which are now mentioned as Ancient India Stepwells, as they have gone extinct.
In my journey from New Delhi to Karnataka, I’ve explored more than two dozen stepwells which were used to store rainwater, and some of them have incredible craftsmanship, that might even make Taj Mahal, the second-best site in India.
But last month I visited a stepwell which is just 10 km from my home and almost every major newspaper in New Delhi has featured it.
I’m talking about Agrasen Ki Baoli which is in Connaught Place, New Delhi.
