The stairwells of Rajasthan were built by the Kings and Queens of Rajasthan centuries ago to bring water to the dry regions of the Kingdom. They were built in a particular fashion and style not to be found anywhere else in India. Very elaborate stairs built on all sides leading to the water reservoir below facilitated the people to draw water easily without the rope and pulley system found elsewhere. The wells are still in use.
