This is an incredible set of astronomical instruments. Jantar Mantar has several astronomical instruments which will keep you busy for more than one hour. Like to see magic of old time go and watch there really very nice.

Very interesting place to visit, with large scale astronomical instruments to read the skies. Amazing how long ago this was built and how advanced their knowledge of astronomy was to have constructed something so accurate at this scale. The signs are not adequate so it is best to hire a guide (once you are inside -- the unofficial guides outside are all touts that want to take you shopping) or download an audio that explains what you are seeing.

Jantar Mantar in located in the centre of the Pink City in the Palace complex. It comprises dozens of astronomical structures, dating back hundreds of years, for measuring the positions of heavenly bodies. Even if you're not interested in astronomy, the impressive and sizeable structures are architecturally and aesthetically amazing. All set in beautifully tended gardens. I've been back each time I visit Jaipur.

A historical monument of its kind, engineering master piece. I would suggest do take a guide for at least this place as you will need explanation to understand the structure.

This is a masterpiece, well preserved historical evidence that gives glimpse of scientific advancement our ancestors have made in the field of astronomy and astrology..its amazing to know that clock at jantar mantar were used as recently around until independence and they are so accurate. The clock, the measurment scales and instruments...it all look amazing and advance considering the period and are well preserved

Very interesting visit, The sun dials are from the small to the gigantic with steps up to the top ( the public cannot go up though ) They were almost accurate to this day. There was a lovely gent who showed us around and told us about our horoscope which was very interesting, if you know your time and place of birth. The marble work was stunning and so accurate

The ingenuity of Jai Singh is evident in this unusual scientific exhibition. We used the services of a local guide but even with the information he provided (Hopefully accurate) it was difficult to grasp the full purpose and story of each exhibit. The exhibit could be better presented

Visited this fabulous collection os astronical pieces and sun dials. Increadible engineering but to truly appreciate it is imperative to have a good guide who actually knows each of the facility. I would also suggest reading up on wiki prior to going so you can truly appreciate each instrument and the massive engineering reqruired to perform such calculations.

Jantar Mantar is a must place to visit in Jaipur. Do take a guide to explain the various sundials and other ancient astronomical devises here to fully experience this wonderful ancient observatory.
