Chand Baori

Chand Baori

Abhaneri is located within the Dausa district and lies at a distance of 90 km from Jaipur in Rajasthan. The architectural beauty of Abhaneri speaks volumes of its history. There are various intricately carves sculptures and temples. These sculptures reflect the richness of culture and tradition of Abhaneri. Abhaneri is famous for two fine monuments of architectural significance ‘Harshat Mata Temple’ and ‘Chand Baori’. This temple is a fine example of architectural brilliance of the 8th century. There are various statues of elephants, which reflect the creative genius of the sculptures, which seems would come to life any moment. There is a huge tank (Chand Baori) opposite the temple, fortified on all four sides with bastions for defense. The staircase of this tank is so stunningly design that a coin once is impossible to retrieve. This place has a distinct nostalgia about itself.
