Aka Rudabai Stepwell. It was built in the memory of Rana Veer Singh, by his wife Queen Rudadevi. This place is very famous among tourists and especially young crowd. 🧐There is a very interesting story of Love and war behind this creation. 😍
Hindu King Rana Veer Singh started construction of this stepwell to provide relief to his people, who had to walk miles for water. However, before monument was finished, he entered into a war with Muslim King Mehmud Begada. King Rana was killed in battle, and King Mehmud fell in love with his widow, the beautiful Queen Roopba (aka Queen Rudabai). Queen agreed to marry King Mehmud—but only on the condition that he finish the stepwell her husband had started. King Mehmud agreed.
When it was finished, Queen Roopba threw herself in to the well, and died. Apparently, she had no intention of marrying King Mehmud—she just wanted to see her husband’s stepwell finished.😊🙏
