The local guide was extremely knowledgeable this observatory is a stone astrological and astronomical observatory built by Maharaja Jai Singh in the 18th century. The largest sundial (I think) in the world is here.

We had a guide and I would thoroughly recommend one for this attraction. He explained so much, which showed the brilliance of a man way before his time. The instruments are amazing and the whole place has a great sense of thought and intelligence. So different from anything else we saw and a must see in my book.

Considering when it was built the detail and scientific accuracy is jaw-dropping. The precision and scale of the instruments must have taken years to plan and map out, and the structures themselves are like cruel modernist statues. Truly remarkable place, a must see.

Unless your educated in astronomical instruments, I think it's worth it to pay a guide there to explain to you how all the tools were used. It's a beautiful site and very interesting! You can tell the time of the day to the minute! I think if you have the time to go you should fit it in your day!

The place where there is lot of beauty and knowledge is situated. Everyone who went there loved the place. The architecture and art of the place tell about the time of king and queen live there. Very beautiful place to be there and have fun. I am again waiting for the time to go there.

This was a very strange and fascinating place. It is full of massive structures that tell the time and plot the movements of the stars and planets. Particularly interesting if you are in to science I guess.
