The lengths some men will go to impress their wives! Not wanting his wives to realise he knew nothing about astronomy, the Raja of Jipur made sure he not only learned everything about it that was known at the time but then built an observatory with which to demonstrate his new-found knowledge. An amazing achievement but you really need a... More

This is really worth a visit - and I would suggest trying to do it with a local guide who can fully explain the significance of the astronomical instruments. The scale of the instruments is amazing and so is the accuracy of measurement that can result from using them. A must in Jaipur.

This is one of the brilliant inventions by the raja of Jaipur, do hire a guide for this place as you will understand the concept in detail and only then the purpose of this visit will get served. Do get yourself clicked in front of your zodiac sign.

The kings and the rulers of Rajasthan are so knowledgeable and they got a good understanding in calculations, maths and astronomy. This Jantar Mantar was exclusively built to cross verify panchanga and its calculations. They have a sun dial built to made exact time calculation with just 2 seconds of error. Imagine how good they are in astro science. Eventhough... More

The destination has the instruments which can tell the exact time of the day using the Sun current position. There are instruments which can predict the eclipse and the declination of planets. The major attraction here is the symbols of all the sun signs

This is a wonderful attraction for all to wonder and wander! Full of incredible scientific instruments created a long time ago that are still working today and still accurate. In the case of the largest sun dial in the world it is accurate to 2 seconds! Make sure you have a guide or hire a handset to guide you through... More

I didn't go to India to be bored to death. But this place was on the tour schedule and I had to go in. There was absolutely nothing of interest to see. My advice? Just drive on by.
