Rani Ki Vav is the oldest and the grandest stepwell in the state of Gujarat. It is situated at Patan and is believed to have been built during 1022 to 1063 AD. The construction was completed by the widowed queen Udayamati. She was the wife of King Bhimdev I, son of Mularaja, the founder of the Solanki dynasty of Anahilwada Pattan. It is a richly sculptured monument and a major tourist spot in Patan. The size of the Rani Ki Vav is so huge that the tourists appear to be ants climbing an anthill.

Rani ki vav is close enough to Ahmedabad and just off a very good highway , so you shouldn't miss the chance to visit it. It's a four or five storey stepwell with beautiful carving on the stone walls and pillars.

Rani kivav is an intricately constructed stepwell. It is located on the banks of Saraswati River. This place is simply awosome. It was built with fine art. You can spend all day just looking at the details of different sculptures. Most of the sculptures are in devotion to Vishnu. Must visit if you are a history lover.
