Toorji Ka Jhalara Stepwell, Jodhpur, India
Toorji Ka Jhalara Baori in Jodhpur, Rajasthan
The Toorji Ka Jhalara Stepwell is in the very centre of the old blue town of Jodhpur but unless you know where to look you'll never find it.
I've been to Jodhpur many times but never knew of its existence until I was looking at a video of the adjacent Raas hotel. Local environmentalist Rajesh Joshi is almost single handedly responsible for clearing and restoring this amazing structure which had fallen into disuse. It seems pristine and has become a popular site for local people and a few tourists who know of it. It featured briefly in the Best Marigold Hotel film.
