From the bottom of the well.

This view is from the bottom of the well. If you look closely you might be able to see all five floors. The well is five storeys below the ground and is a truly astounding monument to a fusion of Indo-Islamic architecture. There are the more Islamic flowers and leaves style but there are also enough dancing maidens, all carefully handcrafted by a group of stonemasons who would eventually reach a tragic end.
