This step-well, built in 1499 by the supervisor of Sultan Mahmud Begada’s harem, descends through five levels of carved stone columns to two small wells, now often dry. The depths are cool, even on the hottest day, and it’s a somewhat eerie place. Behind the step-well, the 16th-century Dai Halima Mosque contains the mausoleum of a royal midwife named Halima, with nice jalis (carved lattice screens).
