Ahmedabad has two prominent stepwells and both of them are extremely beautiful and wonderful places of visit.
Dada Hari ni Vav is an intricately designed step-well (on the lines of the more famous Adalaj ni Vav) built about 500 years back in the year1501, under the reign of Mehmud Begda. Like most step-wells, this too is designed to store water and provide a resting place for the travelers.

Bhavin, Risha and I decided to make a trip to this vav on a rather lazy Sunday morning. We located the vav on google (apparently close to Relief Road), but finally found it in an area called Asarva (near the now defunct, yet still famous Asarva Mill). The area is largely poor and looks more like a small town outside Ahmedabad. Finding it was tough, there are no sign boards and very few people even know that it exists.
