Woman Praying at Roaring Tiger Stepwell, Bundi | Stepwell Photos
Roaring Tiger stepwell is also called Dhabhai Kund.
Roaring Tiger stepwell is so named because a tiger slipped and fell into the well, none of the villagers could rescue the tiger. The well is well maintained by the local people and a popular place to come and pray or leave small devotional offerings.
Dhabhai Kund is a beautiful well made from five different colours of stone, for many people in Bundi, it's their favourite well,
Bundi is a beautiful small town in Rajasthan famous for having over a hundred stepwells though many are in disrepair. We managed to visit five on a visit in February 2017, many are hard to find and of little interest to the local people.
Architectural marvels, they tend to fall into two types: an upside down stepped pyramid like this one or a long stepped trench leading down to a small tunnel accessible only at low water. The tunnel then leads to an adjacent circular well shaft.
