The Karez at Bidar

The qanat/karez are subterranean channels that helped tap, convey and distribute ground water over large areas. Originally a technology from ancient Persia , this was adapted to suit the local climate and geology of Bidar. Unfortunately, years of neglect and lack of effective protection has led to the degradation of this water system. Join us in our efforts in restoring the qanat/karez back to life and to the use of the local communities.
