The article does not mention the location of the well. Even the stepwell atlas returns nothing. Any one here knows where this is?

Just out of interest Kapilanker, did you find this well? I had a quick look around the Nallamalla forest area (near Macherla/Mylacerla) but couldn't see anything of interest. If you are still searching and are planning a trip over there, I suggest you just show a few locals the photos, news article, I'm sure you would get a positive result.... and don't forget to share the co-ordinates with us

That is one beautiful stepwell!

A couple of months back I was visiting my ancestral village and my dad took me to a centuries old stepwell. '



This ignited in me a love for these stepwells.

Do let us know if you find it.
