Agrasen Ki Baoli in the middle of New Delhi.

The old juxtaposed against the new.
That’s Connaught Place in the background.

For the uninitiated, Baoli is Stepwell, a sort of water reservoir.

Although there are no known historical records to prove who built Agrasen ki Baoli, it is believed that it was originally built by the legendary king Agrasen during the Mahabharat epic era and rebuilt in the 14th century by the Agrawal community which traces its origin to Maharaja Agrasen.

Almost near the bottom of the well.

Let’s do a headcount please.
