Dada Hari Vav
One of the convoluted monuments at Ahmedabad, Dada Hari Vav is a stepped wall built during the reign of Mehmud Begda in 1501. This well is situated behind the tomb of Dada Hari.
This magnificent masterpiece was constructed to provide a cool resting place and water to the travellers. It is one of the finest example of rich Gujarati Architecture. The well has a flight of steps leading down to lower platform at a small octagonal shape well. Situated entirely underground, dust and heat does not affect the temperature inside.
The lower parts remain cool even during the hottest days in Ahmedabad. The well has been splendidly carved in typical Gujarati designs. The pillars, walls and steps leading to different levels has been beautifully placed. A perfect example of fine stone work of Gujarat, this well attracts throngs.
The visiting hours are from 09:00 am to 05:00 pm. One visit to the well takes 30 min.
