The Well of Chand Baori: If M.C. Escher Were an Architect, This Would be His Building!

What if M.C. Escher designed a real life building? It'd probably be something like the Chand Baori stepwell near Jaipur, India. The amazing 13-stories well was built in the 9th century and has 3,500 narrow steps. Don't fall - at 100 feet (~30 m) deep, it's a long way down.

Yeah, I think just looking at that causes vertigo as well. So, not only will you feel like you're falling but eventually you will and all those steps...ouch!
