If you are in Jaipur and the culture from here fazes you even a bit, this is one place you must visit. It may be very hard for us to believe that people even in the 16th century went “clubbing”. An example of one such club used for a sort of community gathering area back then is Panna Meena ka Kund or Panna Mian ki Baoli. It is located on Jaipur-Amer road and was built in the sixteenth century.

It was the ultimate hang-out spot of that century- A place where people could come for water, a swim, a chat with a neighbor or relax. In a way, you can say that this is the kind of structure where modern culture meets the ancient culture- even today, this historical site can be fun! The crisscross of stairs, the octagonal gazebos, and the recessed doorways--this baoli is fun to walk around and photograph.

Usually, in most historical sites people are advised to visit during a pleasant weather and avoid summers but uniquely, Panna Meena ka Kund can be visited in summers as the ground in this kund stays cool. This place is made even more exciting by the mystery of the stairs. According to the local residents of the place, it is impossible for a person to use the same stairs to get down and go upstairs- a must try for all the tourists visiting here.
