“You will be amazed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

It was a superb exhibit but when you see it, and when you think about the science and construction involved rather than the astrology, then you will have to pinch yourself to take in that is was built starting in 1727!!!

“JANTAR MANTAR was so EYE OPENING on the PRECISION of READING the Sun & Stars”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

Great tour guide I had, Pradeep Singh was very knowledgeable. I love how the Stars and Sun do not lie and are very precise as long as we have the tools to know how to read it. This genius built a very remarkable and marvelous heaven like place.

“All "repaired" in early 1900s? Best areas closed.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012 via mobile

Wanted to love this site. Love ancient astronomical instruments. But, most of these have been " repaired" so are not in original condition. Also, you cannot climb around them, so all the best views are blocked off.

Hot, with little shade. I overheard a few guides and their information did not seem that fascinating.

However, entry is included with the " composite five-site ticket", it is close to other sites, and takes less than an hour.

“Uninteresting”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

Too bookish and probably would have better if we had employed a guide. Probably the govt or tourism dept provided a free guide to explain things. Otherwise well maintained place and too near the city palace that one can easily visit with the 5 monument ticket.
