Named after Raja Chanda, a Rajput ruler of the eighth century A.D., this grand baori has imposing design and dimensions (about 19.5 m in depth). It has been provided with double flights of steps on each of its ten landings on the three sides. The fourth northern side consists of a multi-storeyed corridor supported on pillars and two projecting niche-shrines which have beautiful images of Mahishamardini and Ganesa. There is also a very small room known as Andheri Ujala. The baori is enclosed by a high wall having a gateway to the north. The enclosure is provided with verandah on all four sides.
