Perhaps one of the most beautiful examples of patterns in architecture, the 10th century Chand Baori Well in India is the world’s deepest, extending 100 feet below the surface of the earth. Built as a solution to chronic water supply issues in this arid region, the well has a total of 3,500 steps in 13 levels arranged in an inverted ‘V’ shape. It’s difficult to imagine the construction process for such a complex stone structure with the technology available at the time.
