The well with 3.500 steps

The most impressive and deep well in the world is located near the small village of Abhaneri, in India, called Chand Baori, which means 'the well with stairs'. The area is known for its countless wells, built by the locals in order to collect rainwater, whilst most wells are made with hundreds of stairs. 

Chand Baori is 30 metres deep, consisting of 13 floors and 3.500 steps. Its construction dates from the 10th century, being one of the oldest wells in the world still in existence.
