    Stop At: Harshat Mata Temple, Opposite the Chand Baori, Abhaneri India

    In the morning, you will be met by a professional English speaking guide at your hotel in Jaipur and driven to the village of Abhaneri.  The present name of the village, 'Abhaneri', is believed to be a mispronunciation of 'Abha Nagri' or the “City of Brightness”. Visit the remains of the ancient Harshat Mata temple, such as the front chamber, the terrace, and the sanctuary walls.  The temple dates back to the 10th century and even though it lies in ruins today, its beautiful craftsmanship is still visible. See images of Hindu deities such as Vishnu and scenes of music, sport, and dance. 



    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Chand Baori (Step well), Jaipur-Agra Road, Abhaneri 303313 India

    You will also visit the 11th-century Chand Baoli step well, a unique idea conceived by the villagers as a way to capture the rain. Therefore, the step well serves as an impressive water reservoir.  Located in the front of the Harshat Mata temple, this colossal step well has a depth of 65 feet with 13 levels. Chand Baori is one of the deepest and largest stepwells in India. It is an architectural wonder with several verandas, beautifully carved panels, and stone-carved pillars that were used as pulleys for drawing water.  After the tour, you will be driven back to your hotel in Jaipur.
