An ornately designed step well, tucked between the suburban area and coal yards, Dada Hari Vav is situated in the region of Asarwa village. This seven-storey step well was built about 500 years ago, under the reign of Mehmud Begda.
It has an elaborately architected spiral stairway. At ground level you do not have much to explore but as you move upwards with every storey you can see a spiral cascade staircase, with shafts of light and beautiful statues and bats fluttering in and out of its dark corners. In addition to this the decorated arches depict a fine blend of Hindu-Muslim architecture and carving skills, which are visible even today.
With its intricate craftsmanship and octagonal shaped underground construction, it is known to be the most complex structures in Ahmedabad. It also provides constant access to water, especially during dry seasons in Ahmedabad. You can easily locate the well as it is at the back of mausoleum of Dada Hari.
