BUNDI 

RANI KI JI BAORI & DABHAI KUND

in the Indian state of Rajasthan.

It was built in 1699 by Rani Nathavati Ji (Solanki) who was the younger queen of the ruling Rao Raja Anirudh Singh of Bundi. It is a 46 meter deep stepped well with some superb carvings on its pillars and a high arched gate. It is a multistoreyed structure with places of worship on each floor. The step well has a narrow entrance marked by four pillars. Stone elephant statues that face each other stand in the corners. Ogee brackets decorate all the archways of 46 m deep Raniji ki Baori, which is reputedly the largest Baori of Bundi. Baoris were significant social constructions in the medieval Bundi since they acted as assembly areas for the townsfolk. Raniji ki Baori has superb carvings on its pillars and a high arched gate.

It was constructed during the reign of his son Maharao Raja Budh Singh who ruled Bundi from 1695 AD to 1729 AD. (Wikipedia)
