Raniji ki Baori, built in 1699 by Rani Nathavati, the youngest queen of the ruling Rao Raja Anirudh Singh of Bundi is an ornate, stone carved deep step well of artistic beauty - a remarkable architectural style of the Rajputs. Rani Nathavati, it is believed, had built 21 wells at her initiative. This step well was built during the period of her son Maharao Raja Budh Singh who ruled Bundi from 1695 AD to 1729 AD. The step wells may be utilitarian, but many of them exhibit significant architectural embellishments.
