Rani Ki Vav precisely “The Stepwell of Queen” is situated beside the bank of River Saraswati. History says this unique architecture with panels of excellent sculptures of different gods & godesses built by skilled craftsmen based on Maru-Gurjara style. The complex technique of this splendid formation is a utility based water resourced storage system probably made during Solanki dynasty in 11th Century AD at Patan, Gujarat. Excavated by ASI this beautiful seven storied stepwell was decorated and spiritualy dignified by mythological characters like Vishnu, Varahi, Kalki, Mahisasurmardini, Kichaka, Vaman including Buddha as murals & stone carved wall panels.

My First visit to Ajrakhpur was amazing. I will certainly visit Ajrakhpur again very soon. According to me the immense variety of textile with the artistic traditions of dying & printing process of Kutch area will certainly touch your mind. The Ajrakhpur block printing of the Kutch region is an example of Gujarat’s pride and considered as an essential part of any Indian woman’s collection. Beautiful geographic patterns and other designs of the artisans that too printed manually with wooden blocks on cloth by unusual natural colours (extracted from mineral, vegetable etc) are some of the most important factors of the popularity of Ajrakhpur Block Printing. They say some of the designs are thousands of years old. You can visit Ajrakhpur, experience a new vision and also can buy as per your choice. My best wishes for the skilled artisans of Ajrakhpur.
