Agrasen Ki baawli


Who would have guessed that just 50 m from hailey road lies a historic wonder piece.A well that once quenched the thirst of many a travellers.A bath frequented by many a nobles.The place is Agrasen ki baawli and its hidden smack in the middle of the city.It is a great looking piece of construction with different layers and steps leading down to the main well.As you can see in the pic its quite steep.this is where "Bol na halke halke" from Jhoom Barabar Jhoom was shot.Its also featured in Hazaaron Khwaishen Aisi.Well I and Arun made a little trip to this place this friday.I also saw the deepest well ever.Its situated rt at its backside.Though it is great looking, The place reeks of Guano.Bat poo ie.There are probably hundreds of bats hanging at the end of those steps.And there are so many pigeons,that its bird shit central.And there are lots of feathers,everywhere.I wonder how they shot here.The ASI could do well to maintain this place.It could turn out to be quite the tourist attraction.
