The Rani Ki Vav was built by Udaymati in memory of her husband, Bhima I and completed by Udyamati and Karna. Rani ki vav stepwell is also the oldest and the deepest among the 120 other stepwells in Gujarat.
Patan is also additionally famous for its ‘patan na patola’ which is basically a hand weaved silk saree and is very costly because of the hard work that goes into making them.
