India Trip Day 10 / Panna Meena Ka Kund or Panna Meena Step well (Jaipur)

風の宮殿の写真を撮ったあとは、ジャイプールの一番の観光スポットのアンバーフォート(砦)に行きましたが、入り口に近いところで週末でもなかったのになぜかガイドさんが驚くほど混んでいてなかなか進みませんでした。時々車を降りて歩いて行く人がいたので歩ける距離か聞いてみましたが、結構遠いし坂道なので車の方が良いとのこと。多分5分ほどで行き着ける距離を少し進んでは止まってという進み方で2、30分待ったでしょうか。

After taking photos of The Palace Of Wind, we drove to Amber Fort, which is the most important sightseeing place in Jaipur.  When we got close to Amber Fort, the traffic was extremely congested.  It would move a few metres then stop, a few minutes later it would move again just a few metres again.  I guess it was like that for 20 or 30 minutes.  We saw some people getting out of their cars and walking ahead so we asked if we should but the guide told us it would be a long and steep hill so it was better to do it in the car.

もう少しというところで、「すぐそこにステップウェルがあるので歩きましょう。」と言われ、ステップウェルまで数分歩いて見学しました。インドの井戸って凄いですね〜。圧倒されます。実物は、すごい迫力です。井戸なのでこんなに綺麗なデザインでなくても良さそうなのに、そこに力を注ぐところがまた凄いです。450年も前に作られたものだそうです。

When we were very close, the guide told us that there is a step well that we could walk to, so we got off the car and walked just a few minutes.  Step wells in India are so impressive!  It’s a well so it doesn’t need to have such a beautiful design, it’s amazing how they spent all that effort for these wells.  Apparently this one is 450 years old!
