Dada Harir Vav or hari ni vav (stepwell) Dada Harir-ni-Vav is situated in the area of Asarva belonging to the period of Sultan Muhammad Begada.
Dada Hari ni Vav is an intricately designed step-well (on the lines of the more famous Adalaj ni Vav) built about 500 years back in the year1501, under the reign of Mehmud Begda. Like most step-wells, this too is designed to store water and provide a resting place for the travelers.
The area is largely poor and doesn’t looks more like a small town outside Ahmedabad. Finding it was tough, there are no sign boards and very few people even know that it exists.
But the vav is an absolute delight! The many storeys are filled with intricately carved walls and columns and the sunlight filtering through makes the place even more beautiful! You can almost go down to the lowest level (not possible in many vavs now a days) and look around.. The address of Dada Hari ni Vav, Ahmedabad is Haripura, Asharwa Area
It's in Haripura, Asharwa Area
