The Abhaneri 3,500 Step Well, Rajasthan, India

The Daily Mail has published some more detailed photographs, this time of The Abhaneri step well, in Rajasthan, India. The advantage of the internet we can discover and have the opportunity to see the wonders of our world's inspired architecture.

3,500 steps line the edges of the well, the detail seen, shows they descend in a maze-like formation all the way to the bottom to reach the water.

Looking from the top - we see the impression of a castle in the design. Spiritual wisdom flows from the heavens on earth through the Crown chakra.

The temperatures at the bottom of the well is consistently five to six degrees below the temperatures on the surface area on the land. Known as Chand Baori to locals, the well is reported to be 1,200 years old.

The well descends around 100ft into the ground, making it known as one of the deepest and largest step wells in the world.

The well has been known to fill up almost to the top during the monsoon season. However water collects from the edges and the earth underground all year round.

The well is made of dark porous volcanic stones that allow water to seep through from the sides and bottom. Rain water is collected from above.

The physical impression of this well, is a chalice containing spiritual waters on earth. The rain is from the heavenly realms that sustains life on earth.

Photographer Florian Wizorek, 34, from Berlin, Germany, captured the extraordinary detail of this ancient landmark during a trip to India.

Hindu designs decorate the ancient walls of the well, to show this particular well holds much spiritual significance.

Detail in the design reveal people from ancient Hindu mythology.

Florian said: 'Due to being surrounded by dozens of stairs, people can access the well from literally every side and when having a closer look at its structures and design, you will easily and yourself not only stuck in a maze of thousands steps but also able to see Shivas beauty.'

Florian added: 'The wells sheer endlessly appearing geometric complexity made of stairs and steps ensures that Rajput people have access to water at any time of the year.

The 1200-year-old well, with precision to detail in the architectual design, is a class one monument in India, the same as the famous Taj Mahal.

In this new Age of Aquarius, we have been seeing floods reported in different parts of the world. This is also a time for new and renewed spiritual understanding to be shared all over the world.

Much appreciation to Florian Wizorek for sharing this discovery.

Peace, love and best wishes
