A well maintained heritage structure from the late medieval period, it's a collection of magnanimous scientific structures like the sundial or the yantra to measure the angle of astral objects from the earth. ASI has maintained the structures and the gardens very finely.

There is an entry fee and tickets are sold right outside the gates. Indians get cheaper tickets. The gardens are kept fairly neat. The building could use a bit more TLC.
