18. Chand Baori Well, Rajasthan, India
If you've seen The Dark Knight Rises, this ancient stepwell may look surprisingly familiar. The mysterious 13-story-deep well, located in Rajasthan, India, was featured in the scene where Christian Bale's Batman is the only one able to take a literal leap of faith to escape.

Chand Baori was built in 800 A.D., serving both as a water conservatory and a place to gather during the intense midday heat. Incredible.
