Part of our summer series: Stepwells on the Silver Screen
Located in the northern Indian state of Rajasthan, a stepwell known as Chand Baori—with 3,500 steps zigzagging down 13 stories—is perhaps the most recognizable of all stepwells. Now maintained by the Archaeological Survey of India, the thousand-year-old site has been featured in several major motion pictures. This summer’s film series includes a Bollywood fantasy, a Hollywood film by an Indian director, and a DC Comics blockbuster.

Since the 5th century, stepwells have served as water-harvesting systems that descend into the earth and enable communities to access the water table or rainwater gathered below. A selection of 46 photographs by journalist Victoria Lautman captures the diversity and sublime beauty of these architectural marvels.
