“Rani-ki-Vav” or The Queen’s Stepwell, as it may be known in English, is a 11th century old heritage site in Patan, Gujarat, on the banks of the Saraswati River.
"Rani-ki-Vav" showcases the distinctive subterranean stepwell construction and represents an example of an architectural type of water resource and storage system.
This is the fifth denomination of banknotes which found itself in the make-over chair, after the 2016’s demonetisation move by the government.
