Bara Baoli Stepwell, Bandarej | Stepwell Photos
Photos of the freshly painted Bara Baoli Stepwell at Bandarej, Rajasthan
When we arrived at Bara Baoli it had been freshly painted in salmon pink and white. It has an imposing wide entrance slightly raised above an open dusty square.
Shaded corridors run down both sides to the far pavilion which has corridors and views through latticed walls looking back out over the steps. It's an unusual stepwell in having similar elaborate pavilions at each end and chhatris, umbrella like pavilions, in the corners.
Arched openings reveal the smooth well shaft behind the back wall. A solitary devotional white flag is trimmed with tinsel. The photo with the white flag shows the view looking back to the entrance.
There are four separate landscape format images available to buy: the Overall image; the Closer image; the view through the Lattice wall and the White flag image.
(The thumbnail image is a portrait detail of the first). The other images on the blog can also be ordered, contact us for details.
