    Stepwells are structures used to collect and store rainwater for various purposes. In recent years, there has been a growing interest in restoring these stepwells in various cities and towns. An 11th century stepwell in Korutla town, built by Polavasa rulers, is now being restored after being neglected for several years. It had become a waste disposal site, with locals using the area to discard garbage. The structure was originally intended to serve as a retreat for travelers, but was reduced to a dump yard until municipal authorities intervened.

    In April 2023, a team of architects and heritage enthusiasts visited the stepwell to document the precinct, taking into account social, economic, and historical factors along with technical and photographic documentation. Drone technology was used to capture every detail possible. The team’s objective is to enhance the precinct and foster a sense of community by incorporating innovative place-making schemes and ideas.

    The restoration proposal offers a place for people to connect, socialize, and engage in activities, creating community spirit and shared purpose. The community spaces play a crucial role in providing residents with a sense of belonging and identity, says team Prathista.
