Rani-ki-Vav at Patan (11th Century) is a set of stepwells and is part of the UNESCO World Heritage site List since 1998. This magnificent east facing step well measures approximately 64m long, 20m wide & 27m deep. A stepped corridor compartmented at regular intervals with pillared multi-storeyed pavilions is a unique feature. It was one of the largest and the most sumptuous structures of its type. There are many Tourist Attractions around Patan including Forts, Vavs (Step Wells), Talavs (Lakes) and places of worships. Salvivad, a place where Patolas (Textile handicraft) are woven along with places where traditional clay toys are made are also worth visiting. Patan is typically visited enroute from Ahmedabad to Mount Abu / Palanpur / Ambaji or as excursion ex-Ahmedabad alongwith Modhera Sun Temple.
