Toorji Ka Jhalra


This geometrically handsome step-well (also known as a baori or wav) has been rejuvenated after decades as a rubbish dump. Its clean lines and clear, fish-filled water will leave you mesmerised. It's a great place to just sit and watch, and the attached cafe adds further incentive for a visit.
