I found out about this ME from my last post featuring Curiouser & Curiouser’s research.
Yeah…. I have done a ton of research into Ancient India, into their technology, their building structures, especially temples, and into their ancient cities, among other topics (astrology, mythology, medieval production, etc.). The last time I studied India in-depth was September, 2015, when I wrote my Avalon novel. At that time, the stepwells were 4 or 5 levels deep, based on several documentaries I watched. I thought, that’s pretty impressive; it rivals the aqueducts of Rome! Well, now this deepest well is 10 levels deep! Imagine having to carry buckets of water up all those stairs!
Correction – The YT info says this well is 13 stories deep!
YT description: Chand Baori is a famous stepwell situated in the village Abhaneri near Jaipur in Indian state of Rajasthan. This step well is located opposite Harshat Mata Temple and is one of the deepest and largest step wells in India. It was built in 9th century and has 3500 narrow steps and 13 stories and is 100 feet deep. It is a fine example of the architectural excellence prevalent in the past.
