Adalaj Stepwell or Rudabai Stepwell, built in 1498 by Rana Veer Singh of the Vaghela dynasty is an example of Indian architecture work. The step well or 'Vav', as it is called in Gujarati, is intricately carved and is five stories deep. Stepwells are also found in more arid regions of the Indian subcontinent, extending into Pakistan, to collect rain water during seasonal monsoons.
