This is an interesting site to visit but you do need a guide to explain to you how things work. Hundreds of years ago they built concrete blocks that can tell the months/seasons/signs of the zodiac, etc all by the rays of the sun. Don't ask me how they knew what to do but it was remarkable to see them... More

Nice museum for young children or adults interested in astronomy and outer space. Was over crowded when we went on Saturday. Education experience for kids.

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

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.
