Ranki Vav in 3D

Rani ki Vav, "The Queen's Step Well", was built in the last decades of the eleventh century by Queen Udayamati as a memorial to her husband Bhimadeva I of the Chauhukya or Solanki dynasty. Measuring more than sixty-five metres in length, it is among the largest in Gujarat, and in terms of its sculptures which number several hundred, surpasses all other examples. Adorned with exquisitely carved sculptures arranged in panelled niches, it is actually a temple well. The CA&A's architectural documentation team measured this stepped well and developed a to-the-scale 3D model, which not only allows an unhindered walkthrough of this seven terraced stepped well, but it also allows access to the closed areas of this monument such as the Well and pavilions making it a tremendous tool for a detailed study of the monument.
