A lot of step wells in Gujarat are in a state of decay and are in a very bad shape. One such step well is in Vadodara, which not many people have heard of. Called as the Vidyadhar ni Vav it is located in the Savli village just outside Vadodara, on way to Sindhrot. It is right by the main road, and if you don’t look carefully, there is quite a chance you would miss.
Built in a traditional style, as a lot of vavs in Gujarat are, it has a small entrance and has many levels going below. You will find some idols in the vav still being worshiped here. There is generally a guard present there, who doesn’t bother you, but stops the village kids coming to play from going down the steps.
