Not many people come to see this atmospheric stepwell at Lohargal, a small town on the edge of the Aravali hills in Rajasthan. Rajesh, the delightful owner of the Tourist Pension Guest House in nearby Nawalgarh guided us here. Rajesh's Tourist Pension is highly recommended if you're touring the Shekawati region of Rajasthan. He's a enthusiastic guide and his wife prepares wonderful food.
