History of Rani Ji Ki Baori
Rani Nathavati Ji was the second wife of Raja Anirudh Singh. She gave birth to a son, Maharao Raja Budh Singh. But the previous wife of the king was unable to give birth to a baby. Thus, Rani Nathavati gave her son to the previous queen and devoted herself for the well being of the common man of Baori. This is the reason she took the initiative of constructing the stepwell.
