hmm article doesnt state where they're located
one of those looks exactly like the set of a movie i've seen. I cant remember which exactly, possible one of the Indiana Jones movies - not sure

my mother is going to india later in this year, the northern region, not sure if she's visiting any of those.

Of course two non-Indians have responded. What good is the BCCI running this place if we can't even get a tracer bullet comment!?!?!

The Stepwells? The BCCI? Or the people here posing as Indians?

No I have not seen this. But many wells in India have steps, but this looks amazing!
