Champa Baodi

Notable Building in Mandu

So-called because its water supposedly smelled as sweet as the champak flower, the Champa Baodi is a circular step-well with vaulted side-niches. It was accessed by a series of vaulted passages and chambers, called the Tahkhana, some of which you can explore from nearby entrances, though you can't actually reach the well. You can, however, look down into it from above.
