The city is seeing the revival of step-wells. Heritage step-wells in the city and in neighbouring areas are being identified and restored in a phased manner. The step-wells that are vital to retaining the groundwater levels apart from preserving the rich heritage of the city are being revived and restored by the state government, with city-based volunteers doing their best by putting in their efforts. 

Bhagwandas Baoli and Shiva Bagh Baoli are two step-wells that were restored recently after recognising their historical significance, and both the bodies are located near Gudimalkapur. Work is on at the Saidanima tomb near Tank Bund right now. 

The Hyderabad Design Forum (HDF) has submitted a list of 100 wells in the state to state and municipal administration and urban development department (MAUD). The authorities will now shortlist the wells and then take up works in a phased manner. Meanwhile, individual contributors are working on reviving these wells too. 

One step-well in Gachibowli, two in Kokapet and one in Bapu Ghat are being given a facelift. They have taken up measures to recharge groundwater as part of the step-well restoration project. They are also draining rainwater and water from rooftops into the well. 

Members of The Rainwater Project, the group restoring step-wells in Gachibowli and Kokapet, say that they even tested the limestone used in these wells so that a similar mix can be used during restoration. 

Waters from a madrasa, mosque and other structures are being diverted into the Gachibowli step-well while rooftop water from a gaushala is also being diverted into the well.
