Came back to Zostel, rested a while and than went to the Stepwell Cafe. It is located at the stepwell which is known by the name of Toorji Ka Jhalra by the locals. People visit this cafe as it gives an bird eye view of the Stepwell. Cool place to hang out. Also provide you with an amazing view of the Mehrangarh fort. It looks amazing during night when the lights of the fort are turned on.
