If you like astronomical observation instruments of large scale and really old, this site is for you. It’s really hot in April so bring a scarf, hat & sunglass. The concrete glare is a killer. Spent 45 min here and it was enough unless you need the tour guides.

Please visit with a experienced guide to enjoy and understand the ancient Indian science and technology. It is a very well maintained observatory which you can explore within an hour.

Jantar mantar observatory in Jaipur is a wonderful blend of Indian science as well as mathematics.even though there are people highly knowledgeable when they see the observatory they just say wow...not a single word to explain what exactly it is.... whenever you have a chance to visit this don't miss it out... highly recommended....

We were not sure what to expect with the visit to the Royal Observatory / Jantar Mantar. It is where Astronomy and Astrology meet. Considering the age of the observatory (which is all outdoors and relies on the sun for its numerous readings), it is very good condition and as the guides all point out, it is VERY accurate at telling the time etc.

Even if you are not particularly interested in the Astronomy &/or Astrology it is worth a visit to see how the sun plays an important time keeping role here on Earth.
