    What Did I Like?

    We have all loved and adored the Taj Mahal as a symbol of love. But did you know a queen also built a magnificent structure in memory of her beloved husband? Here's the story of the image on the new INR 100 note released by RBI on Thursday, July 19, 2018. An inverted temple-like 7 storied stepwell was commissioned in the 11th century by Queen Udayamati of the Solanki Dynasty commemorating her husband King Bhima. There are thousands of unique and intricate carvings, denoting the craftsmanship of that era. Perfectly symmetrical and geometrically sound design. It is adorned with sculptures of the Dasavataras, Apsaras, Patola prints, and images of Lord Vishnu in all three worlds {heaven, earth, and hell}. As you go lower, the air gets cooler. The steps itself are grandiose, Surrounded by manicured gardens, this beautiful structure was even awarded the Cleanest Iconic Place in India in 2016. Photographers and history lovers will love this place. About 125 km from Ahmedabad in Patan, Gujarat, the entry fee is INR 5 for Indians and 2 USD {INR 138 approx.} for foreigners. The local guides here will explain you stories in Hindi, English, and Gujarati at a nominal fee. Oh, and there's ample parking space here.

    How Much Did It Cost?

    Under INR 500

    Best To Go With?
