Water well with Bucket Chain - near Udaipur (India)

Those deep water wells are several hundred years old, and they can be found everywhere in the country side in Rajasthan.­ They are usually equipped with a bucket chain (visible in this photo) powered by cows or oxes, to pump the water from the well into irrigation channels.­

Here is another photo of this water well.
