Photo feature: Haunted historical Agrasen Ki Baoli (step well) in the heart of India's Capital
Legends say that the Agrasen ki Baoli (step well) was originally built by legendary King Agrasen during Mahabharta Time around 3000 BC and the present architecture was rebuilt in the 14th century during the Tughlag or Lodi period of the Delhi Sultanate.
Agrasen Ki Baoli, also called Ugrasen Ki Baoli, is a 60-meter long and 15-meter-wide historical stepwell in New Delhi, India. Baoli or stepwells are wells or ponds where the water is accessed by descending a series of steps to the water level.
This is prevalent in the country's drier regions when rulers built them as water reservoirs to sustain the people during the summer and as a backup against droughts. The Archaeological Survey of India preserves 14 Baolis or wells in Delhi alone.
