The India City Walks Festival (ICWF) is designed to bring India’s built legacy and resources closer to its due recognition amongst the youth and the global citizens. It is designed particularly to enhance domestic tourism in India. By adhering to the norms of social distancing and yet bringing the best experiences together for the travellers is our focus, we bring to you the India City Walks Festival™️ in your city.
Ahmedabad is home to around 17-19 step wells. We can alternately also call it as ‘The City of Vaavs’. Prominent among these are the Rudabai ni Vaav near Adalaj and Bai Harihar ni Vaav near Asarva. A notable feature is that women commissioned both these wells. We can actually group them as architecturally splendid and awe-inspiring. In addition, these water structures give us a glimpse of the social fabric of medieval society through their ornamental carvings. Moreover, they also throw light on the water conservation strategies of the past. We can witness a progressive social life of yore as well as the presence of exceptional artisans in the era gone by through them.
Our “Step Well Walk” promises to be a visual treat to your senses. In addition, it is our promise that it also sensitizes you to the rich cultural diversity of our land.
