This is a beautiful step well in the busy Kaikondanahalli area, adjacent to the Sarjapura Road. About 30ft in diameter and 50ft deep. The water level used to come upto about 3m below ground level (about 8 years back) but now the well has very little water. To think that now borewells in the area yield little or no water even upto 1200 ft depth and that not very long ago shallow wells like these had water at about 10ft below ground level.
And incidentally, it is Dr Himanshu Kulkarni of ACWADAM inside the well :)

The design of the house was done by Biome and the well was integrated as part of the building design with a bridge on top.
