Nanag Ram ji ki Baoli, Bandarej | Stepwell Photos
Two photos of the Nanag Ram ji ki Baoli stepwell at Bandarej, Rajasthan.
This once was a lovely well with elegant arches but we hear a story that will become all too familiar - no decent rain and the well's been dry for 30 years - but the older men can remember swimming in the water when they were young.
A push through the trees and shrubs that block the entrance leads to a unique collection of arched shapes and perspectives as well as a close detail of the building materials.
Small trees now grow out of the stone walls; a plastic bag is caught in a branch. Seeing the raw construction reminds you of the scale of the labour involved in digging the well.
There are two different images available:
The Portrait image shows a detail of the arches,
The Landscape image showing the whole well. (The thumbnail is a cropped version of the portrait image).
