Agrasen Ki Baoli



As promised, I finally managed to go into the Agrasen Ki Baoli over this weekend. This is a historic well, nested between the multi-storey buildings of Connaught Place. This photo shows the contrast that had me completely mesmerized. It is so nice to know something new about a place, you have grown up in. Will post more photos from the Baoli in the days to come.

It was constructed in 14th century and I just learned that today. It is really a well. It just doesn't seem like a well because it isn't a round hole in the ground. This is a splendid well. Nice. I saw a nice article on it doing a Google Search.

Hi
Me and my students are doing a project on Agrasen Ki Baoli and your pics are just wonderful. Do you have more and would you be willing to share them with us? We need pics for our project and haven't got that many or that nice! Thanks
