Giant Step Well in Abhaneri

Near Jaipur on the road to Agra is a small town called Abhaneri which has a giant "step well" called Chand Baori. It was used to collect rain water, but oddly it was also a temple and then a palace!

I love the patterns of light and dark that the steps make based on the angle of the sun!

This is beautiful! Know any movies that have been shot here?

I read that The Fall had scenes filmed there, but I haven't seen it. Here's a screenshot I found.
