Jantar Mantar - Jaipur reviews
Very interesting..specially my kids who are around 10 years was a good experience for them. The local guide was very fluent in English and explained very nicely more »
The Jantar Mantar (literally meaning 'Calculating Instrument') is a collection of 19 architectural astronomical instruments built by Raja Sawai Jai Singh the 2nd, the founder of the city of Jaipur... more »
You will be amazed to see the monumental astronomical instruments (some being the largest in their category) and the simplicity through which they have been designed to provide astronomical insights even with naked eyes. It is a beautifully maintained small complex with yellow painted walls. It's a historical site famous among tourists. It contains a number of different devices that were used to measure time in different eras in the Indian history. All those ways to check time are amazing and unique. Along with those devices it also has beautiful garden all around these devices. It has a nominal ticket price of ₹15 for Indians but about ₹225-250 for foreigners. Nice place to visit.
A beautiful well built astronomical structure. Was amazed to see such an artistic structures built so many years back without major technology. I would suggest one to visit this place and also take a guide and you will learn a lot about the skies and all its amusing things. Located next to the city palace and easily accessible by auto and cabs. One should visit this place and enjoy the history that comes along with this.
