This was very well maintained and a fascinating view of how amazing scholars of those times worked out the heavens and telling time accurately. We had a guide Sameer Saran ( official excellent tour guide for our Vjv trip) which you need as it is busy and complicated-it was also very hot without much shelter. But worth a visit if... More

A variety astrological instruments designed and built hundreds of years ago. Would recommend hiring a guide to ensure you don't miss out on the history and purpose behind each instrument.

On your way to the city palace, you can have a quick stop over to marvel at the old astrological instruments built by a science inclined King of Jaipur. If you are a astronomy enthusiast spend more time understanding. Only thing we thought was lacking was the information boards didn't really help us relate to the importance of a place... More

This is a very strange and interesting place. There are a large number of astrological instruments here all about 200 years old. It makes you wonder how they knew what to build and where. As I say intriguing! A must to visit if in Jaipur - will leave you wondering how...why....

The brilliance of the people of yesteryear was obvious here. The nineteen instruments allow the observation of astronomical positions with the naked eyes.

Jantar Mantar was cheaper than the other sights in Jaipur and close to the others so make sure to add it on to your list of sites in Jaipur. They instruments date from the 1700s so they weren't earth shattering for their time.

I wanted to go there because I think it sounded fascinating. It was an interesting place with large stone built objects. You definitely need a guide to explain about all the instruments and the meaning of them.
