Being my second time I understood the astronomical concepts in a clearer sense of the words. I also realized how astronomy plays an important role in the daily lives and religious beliefs of Indians

.... and that's the reason I visited :) If you'r into observatories, astronomy and that kind of things, you should visit. Unfortunately, I am not, so.... By the way, I also visited Jantar Mantar in Delhi (not far from Connaught Place) but the one in Jaipur is a bit more impressive I think

Take a guide, and he will explain you the brilliance in the amazing brain of Maharaja Jai Singh II. I bet unless you are a mathematician and astonomer of the highest pedigree, you wouldn't understand even a bit of what is being told barring the purpose for which each scale was commissioned for. But you will willingly submit yourself to the greatness of human capability, if channelled in the right way.

The fact that even today this structure is being used as a reference of time, speaks volumes about the thought and forethought that has gone into its construction. And we should thank all those shehenshahs and badshahs who have not ventured to destroy it in their zeal to usurp new territories.

I recommend that when you visit the place, try to focus on what is being told because unlike other historical monuments, this place is not about the stories and fables but its about Science and that too applied.

With a Guide it will take atleast 1 - 2 hrs to round the place ( if you have good questions to ask) or else its a matter of 10 mins between your walk-in and walk-out. The choice lies with us.
