what is a vav? nothing looks like 300 years old in this pic to me. Can you mark it with a red circle?

Vav is a stepwell. Surely you've heard of Rani-Ki-Vav, it's on the Rs 100 note now.

The entrance to Lakhi vav is blocked by those branches.

Try to find some contact if your state's archelogical survey of India. These guys might intervene and do something if its a good contact.

I wonder why the ASI does not channel rain water into these wells to fill them up. Those are wells and not supposed to be empty or full of green algae water like in the pic.
