About Chanderi

Rimjhai Bawdi,ChanderiThe Rimjhai Bawdi, located in the Madhao Nagar area of Bahar Shaher is in desperate need of attention and restoration. It is square in shape with steps descending down to the water which continues to be quite clean. An inscription is installed within the bawdi walls but is eroded beyond decipherment.

Near the bawdi is a mosque to which the bawdi would have been originally attached, as mosques were always provided with a source of water for wudu and drinking purposes. The mosque is still frequented by the area Muslims. Structurally, both the bawdi and the mosque appear to be 16th century constructions.
