so many of my blogger friends (especially RJ and Reems)* left me on blogger and shifted to WP. I didn’t have choice, so came here after them…
Keep visiting me here!
*pardon me RJ and Reems for not linking you guys, as it will take me sometime to get used to WP!
This is an old step well just at the outskirts of Ahmedabad at Adalaj Village, Gujarat (India).
The approach road to this step well is as good as a village road in India is expected to be! But the monument is worth the trip. The stale and stagnant water smell is always there but the dampness also gives the place a cool feeling. Check out the intricate carving. I have been to this place a lot many times, but it has never stopped amazing me. I wish Govt. of India would take care of its heritage like the other developed countries do. Or one day the future generation will not be able to see such magnificent workmanship.
This windmill actually rotates. I bought the craft project for my daughter. But the foldings were a bit intricate for her and she asked me to help. Ultimately, it so happened that she ran away with her friends to play and I completed the project. Loved making it. Never noticed that I was doing alone.
