Panna Meena ka Kund

Panna Meena ka Kund or Panna Mian ki Baoli, is located on Jaipur-Amer road near the Anokhi Museum  Amer area. It was built in the sixteenth century, It was buil as a sort of community gathering area.  A place where people could come for water, a swim, a chat with a neighbor or relax. The criss-cross of stairs, the octagonal gazebos, and the recessed doorways--this baoli is fun to walk around and photograph. It is a great place to sit and spend some time during the hot summer afternoons because the ground of the kund remains very cool during that time.

According to the local residents of the place, it is impossible for a person to use the same stairs to get down and go upstairs. It is a big mystry of the place and all the tourists visiting here try to do this.
