dc.descriptionExhibition of photographic work documenting stepwells in western India.en
dc.description.abstractStepwells have been constructed over the last 12 centuries in India to harvest and provide access to water in the arid and desert regions of Rajasthan and Gujarat where they can mostly be found. The wells fell into disuse in the 19th century being replaced by water pumps. Although a great deal of these wells are neglected beyond repair, the decision made by the Government to restore some important sites is an important recognition that stepwells are significant examples of traditional Indian architecture.en
