Rani-ki-Vav and other Stepwells in Gujarat, India in 4K Ultra HD

“The stepwells have been used in India for 1500 years for collection and storage of water, over the time they evolved into complex works of art and architecture.

Rani-ki-Vav (the Queen’s Stepwell) in Patan, Gujarat, India was built in the 11th century AD. It is UNESCO World Heritage site for: “Rani-ki-Vav was built at the height of craftsmens’ ability in stepwell construction and the Maru-Gurjara architectural style, reflecting mastery of this complex technique and great beauty of detail and proportions. Designed as an inverted temple highlighting the sanctity of water, it is divided into seven levels of stairs with sculptural panels of high artistic quality; more than 500 principle sculptures and over a thousand minor ones combine religious, mythological and secular imagery, often referencing literary works.” (quote from whc.unesco.org/en/list/922)

The Sun Temple in Modhera was built in 11th century AD, it is another stunning architectural creation of the Indian architects of the past. In front of the temple is the stepped tank/reservoir.

The Adalaj Stepwell, near Ahmedabad was built at the end of the 15th century, it is intricately carved and is five stories deep.
