At a distance of 14 km from Jaipur Junction Railway Station and 1 km from Amer Fort, Panna Meena Ka Kund is an eight storey step well located close to Jaipur-Amer road near the Anokhi Museum.
Also known as Panna Mian Ki Baoli, the step well was built in sixteenth century. It is one of the most visited tourist spots in and around Jaipur. This beautiful well has a unique architecture with criss-cross steps arranged on three sides with small niches created into the walls. The fourth side has a multi-storeyed balcony. The doorways are located at a lower level and one can find octagonal gazebos here which make this place quite attractive. According to the local residents, it is impossible for a person to use the same stairs to get down and go upstairs. It is one of the mysteries of the place and all the tourists visiting here try doing this.
The beauty of the place can be best seen during rainy season. Thousands of the tourists visit this place to explore its beauty and unique style. It is a great place to sit and spend some time in the evenings.
