“Dramatic and 'still working'!”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

Not to be missed, beautifully renovated and exquisite. The sundial (HUGE) works fine and you can see the shadow moving. Other instruments are more obscure but very impressive indeed.

“Astronomical Observatory”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

With a collection of numerous astronomical instruments, this place is an excellent example of the development of science in India almost 3 centuries back. This place is like a mystery for any person with all these majestic instruments. The best way to enjoy this place is to hire a guide and you can see your excitement growing many folds once you start understanding how various instruments works with accurate perfection.
