We visited this place during a tour of Jaipur. I wish I hadn't bothered. For 200rps per person you get to walk around some concrete and metal with no sort of explanation other than it was used to find the point of the heavenly beings! There was no tour guide/audio or book to buy. Until you leave the place and... More

Jantar Mantar monument was constructed to serve as an atronomical observatory. This was built in 18th Century by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II. Jantar Mantar has 19 complex astronomical devices there were used to observe the heavenly bodies in the sky and study astronomical phenomenon. Jantar Mantar throws light on the astronomical knowledge possessed by Marwar people.

This is a great place to list if you want to see how accurate time measurements can be without the use of a digital device or a watch. The science behind this is amazing and it is truly a sight to behold. We loved seeing how accurate these devices were in relation to the watches we were wearing.

Jantar Mantar contains a set of astronomical devices built upon orders of Maharaja Jay Singh II in the 18th century. Those devices include, among other things, solar clocks and instruments to calculate azimuths and other coordinates to locate heavenly bodies. It's an interesting thing to see and it's very close to City Palace.

A totally unexpected attraction. A massive outdoor astronomical wonderland. It is full of what look like abstract sculptures that are actually massive astronomical instruments including the world's biggest stone sun dial. Absolutely fascinating.

The most important thing it to hire the services of a credible guide. The aspect we learnt about the astronomical details were just incredible. Why don't we promote this more aggressively. There are 3 Jantar Mantars in India - Delhi, Jaipur and Ujjain. Scientists are currently researching if these are in any way co-related? I would love to learn more..

You'll need a good guide to fully appreciate this place, which is less famous than Amber Fort or Hawa Mahal of course but so so interesting. Everything is angled at 27 degrees and the sun dials (including the largest Sundial in the world) and a few other celestial devices we're all still working, some almost 300 years later! Fascinating and... More

This observatory of different time and astrological methods from generations before is well worth a visit from Sun dials to working out what star signs are compatible with each other.
