Hyderabad has several historic wells and the government has recently restored two stair wells. The well of Osmania University was built in 1798 by Chanda Bai. She was among the respected personalities of the Asaf Jahi regime. This historic well is famous for its stairs which are in a state of disrepair, a part of the well has collapsed.

This well of Osmania University is part of the cultural heritage and its restoration will restore the historical heritage of the university. The Telangana government has taken steps to convert wells into tourist destinations by restoring them.
