Rani Uday Mati Vav:

Rani Uday Mati Vav:
It is one of the largest step wells in Gujarat. Rani Udaymati built it during the last decade of the 11th century in memory of her husband, Bhimdeva I of the Chalukya Dynasty. http://www.indiainfoweb.com/gujarat/patan/gifs/rani-ni-vav.jpgThe Vav is decorated with around 800 stone sculptures and relief. There are impressive images of Gods of the Hindu pantheon in their various incarnations with their consorts. No other step-well in India is as profusely adorned as this.
