ⓘ Dwarka Baoli

Dwarka Baoli is a historical stepwell recently discovered in Dwarka Sub City, in south west New Delhi, India. It was constructed for the residents of Loharehri village by the Sultans of the Lodi Dynasty in the early 16th century. Dwarka now stands where the Loharehri village once stood. Located in a barren stretch of land between a residential society and a private school on Azad Hind Fauj Marg, Sector 12, Dwarka, at 28-35-58.95 degree North and 77-02-38.67 degree East. It was hidden by a large group of Peepal trees and covered by a thick undergrowth which seems to have aided in its relative obscurity. It is mentioned in Maulvi Zafar Hasans 1910 Monuments list which says it was not very deep and had 22 steps. It is under restoration by the State archeological department and work will be taken up by INTACH Delhi Chapter.

Baoli or bawdi, also referred to as baori or Bauri, is a Hindi word, from Sanskrit wapi or VAPI, vapika. Water Indian temples and temple step wells were built in Ancient India and the earliest forms of step well and reservoir were built in India in places like Dholavira in civilization in the Indus valley.
