Book Description
The stepwell, or a well with an underground flight of steps leading down to the level of the water, developed early in the arid region of western India and Rajasthan. In the earliest stepwells nothing more than plain dressed stone protected the sides of the sandy pit, but gradually architects devised the means to strengthen these structures, the corridors expanded vastly in length and width, landings were introduced at regular intervals, pavilions with multiple storeys were built, and the stepped passage, which to begin with was only a practical adjunct to a well, acquired a character of its own.
