Panna Meena ka Kund, Jaipur Stepping Well

I’m going to keep this short and sweet so I can get to the good stuff. Aka pictures. We had some extra time while we were in Jaipur, India and stumbled along the Panna Meena ka Kund, an old step well in close proximity to the Amber Fort. It’s pretty hidden from the road since the top is close to being flush with the road. I loved visiting Panna Meena ka Kund because unlike one of the larger step wells in the area, such as Chand Baori (which I would also highly recommend if you’re in the area), this one is pretty desolate of tourists and is unrestricted; letting you walk all the way to the bottom with no problem. We were also told that in the summer this area is used as a local swimming hole for some kids; although just looking at the water, I wouldn’t recommend it. If you’re taking the 15 minute trip out to the fort, make sure to also make the stop by Panna Meena ka Kund.

    It should be nice place for travels and you looks so cute in this place. I like visit there when i got break from my job. So i hope you must be enjoy your time in there friends….


    Travel trips are so important for human life why not it can be given to so experience to ours where we are go out of famous fort or museum for traveling then we are lost our feelings without intuitions because of we are go to forget our truly thinking mind to this sequence. Thanks for entertainment info.

    I live in jaipur itself. And I can tell you that I go to this place early morning. It’s an amazing experience. I am sure you have visited galta temple (where there is a cow from whose mouth the water flows continuously) and it is known for its mischeveous monkeys as well.

    Hmm, a ‘stepping well’ what an interesting place – I’m confused by the original purpose but love the pictures. So exotic!

    it reminds me of one of those paintings where the stairs can be going up or down depending how you look at it. I feel like these out of the way places are always the best to visit.

    Wow – I love the symmetry, and surprisingly quiet. I’m gutted that I missed seeing this when I was in Jaipur a few years ago. Another reason to go back I guess :)
