A site dedicated to the study of astronomy, Jantar Mantar - Jaipur holds a place on the World Heritage List and plays home to a number of observational instruments. Visit the site, considered the finest of the nation's historic observatory facilities, and wander among 20 different astronomical structures, including a giant sundial topped with an observation deck. You'll find that these monuments, spread out across the complex's grassy grounds, allow for astronomical observation with the naked eye rather than a telescope. Consider visiting with a local guide to find out more about each instrument.

  • One of the best old and rich science & engineering concepts I have ever visited. The items were manufactured with extreme precision. It clearly says the relationship between the position of sun and the time, really a beautiful place to visit with proper understanding. Do see some of the YouTube videos available on these concepts. You will also get a chance to see the video on the basic concepts from their office. A must visit place.
  • Beautiful design of sun dial / sun clock. Combination of Art, math calculation and prediction of sun movement. Nice, fun and full of knowledge. While sight seeing, we can see the historical ways to tells time with math and logic calculation. Good place to bring your family and kids along as we can do both having holiday while learning about historical time. Minus is that no public parking nearby, you have to find parking bit far from Jantar Mantar. Of more wisely to use tuktuk or taxi to come here. If you visit at noon, consider to use your hat and sunglasses, as it is a bit hot.
