Dada Hari Ni Vav, Gujarat

Dada Hari Ni Vav is one of the few archeological brilliances in the country that not only magnifies technological superior of the India civilization but also glorifies the futurist mindset of the rulers from those eras. Like Rani Ki Vav, Dada Hari Ni Vav is also an ancient step well system found in the Indian subcontinent dating back to the medieval eras. So, what is a step well? It is actually a special kind of well, formed by concentric and descending stair fleets built either by staging rock slabs or cutting steep steps on a pre-exposed natural topography. This is essentially a utility construction made to procure water from various sources to quench the water crisis of a region. It is an irrigation tank and was the most practiced structure in the medieval ages.

Apart from the civic amenity, these structures were made for worshipping purposes also. Temple and mosques were erected inside with lots of sculptures to make the whole construction an embodiment of archeological beauty. Dada Hari Ni Vav was constructed by the superintendent of a royal harem known as Bai Harir Sultani. She was a popular figure during the Mahmud Shah’s reign and with her requisition this step well was established. However, she was better known as Dhai Harir and her burial tomb is the cater piece in this step well. In course of time the name of this historical structure modified and became Dada Hari Ni Vav. This is one of the greatest tourist pullers of Gujarat Tourism.
