It tells us how important the idea of conservation of water was even in the 8th century. The very elaborate structure with thousands of steps leading to the water in the central well is itself an architectural masterpiece. What is astonishing is the scale of planning done by the little known Chand Dynasty. It was ensured that this structure not only served as a perennial source of water but also a socially central place. Stepwells also used to be great strategic assets that ensured greater capabilities of resistance during the times of siege by hostile forces. Such stepwells were known to have water even in harshest droughts. The knowledge of connecting aqueducts and aquifers was used to great effect. The system still works perfectly. Nowadays during these monsoon months, the system of connecting rainwater flow with the well can be witnessed in working condition. The place is not far from the famous city of Jaipur.
