Dada Harir's Vav is a deep cascade of stairs and columns plunging down several stories, with shafts of light falling
on beautiful carvings and birds and bats flitting in and out of the shadowy corners.
Built around 500 years ago by Sultan Bai Harir, this stepwell is like others around Gujarat, with elaborate craftsmanship and construction built underground
to provide access to a permanent source of water.
For many years stepwells like this one provided most of the water for the city during the long dry seasons.
On the walls as you descend, you will find carvings of all type, including some in Sanskrit as well as in Arabic script.
