Chand Baori is a stepwell situated in the village of Abhaneri in the Indian state of Rajasthan. Chand Baori at Abhaneri Village in Rajasthan is the most photogenic step well of India. Chand Baori is the oldest surviving step well in Rajasthan and probably India.
Fatehpur Sikri is a small city in northern India, just west of Agra, founded by a 16th-century Mughal emperor. Red sandstone buildings cluster at its center. Buland Darwaza gate is the entrance to Jama Masjid mosque. Nearby is the marble Tomb of Salim Chishti. Diwan-E-Khas hall has a carved central pillar. Jodha Bais Palace is a mix of Hindu and Mughal styles, next to the 5-story Panch Mahal that overlooks the site.
We were promptly picked up from our Jaipur hotel and driven to Agra. On the way we stopped at the step well which was awesome. The driver waited for us for twenty min and it was perfect. Then we got to Fatephur Sikri and that’s where it all went down hill. First we were driven to a spot and told we have to take a rickshaw the rest of the way. It would cost 100 rupees for the two of us. He asked if it was ok- what were we supposed to do? So we said yes. Drove us not very far (def not worth 100 rupees round trip. Then we had to walk up a giant hill. Our “guide” had a motorbike and said he would meet us at the top. Then he handed us off to his brother who speaks English. He was awful. Every tour guide we have had in India has been helpful and reminded us not to engage with the hawkers. This guy literally brought us to every one and said this is my family or this is my friend - buy this. At one point I said no and he was like it’s for charity. If it’s not your heart then God will judge you. I don’t know need to be guilted by my guide that I’m paying good money for. It was so bad as he rushed us through the first part. We just ran around spot to spot. It was incredibly overwhelming and not what we were looking for. I was so upset I said I didn’t want to even see the second half and just wanted to go back and continue to Delhi. The driver was great and got us there safely and quickly. They need better guides.
