In 1863 when the gold domed well was opened for use, people flocked on foot, horseback and on carts to see, let alone use, this unusual and opulent structure. It was all the more curious as it was the gift of the Maharajah of Benares. Today it still attracts many visitors simply because it is a beautiful thing to see, has a fascinating history and is in a pretty garden setting.
Access to the well environs is free at all times, including Bank Holidays and weekends. There is a box containing an informative booklet plus a donation facility on site.
