The carving of Lord Vishnu resting on Sheshnag on the walls of the draw well of Rani ki vav stepwell in Patan.

At the far end of the Rani Ki Vav stepwell, you must look out for this sculpture of Lord Vishnu sleeping on his bed of Sheshnag. The same sculpture can be seen at two other levels of the well. These symbolize the presence of Lord Vishnu in the three worlds – Swarg (heaven), Paatal (Hell) and Bhoomi (Earth). To spot these, you will have to look towards the draw well part of Rani ki Vav. Depending on the water levels in the well, one can see all three of them.
