Jantar Mantar Jaipur is one of the best archeo-astronomical observatories in the world. If you have even little bit of the knowledge of Astronomy, this place is for you. Just go and explore. Most of the instruments are unique and one of their kind. To realize the real beauty of this place one must know a few things about Positional Astronomy. When you visit this place, keep in mind that you don't disturb any instrument by unnecessarily touching it or trying to move it. Even if your guide tries to move any cross wire just to show you the shadow (you will understand when you go there) please ask him not to do that.
Impressive "collection" of centuries old astronomical devices and tools. Our guide (not affiliated with this place) did a pretty good job of explaining in layman's terms what each did. Really interesting to see how well people in that time mastered the science and practical applications (crop planning, monsoon calendar, unified standard time for the state) despite being limited to what would today be considered rudimentary technology.
It's a place which keeps the person assumed on how people 300-400 years ago measured time so accurately. All instruments are great. Suggestions to management: please put details of each instrument elaborated. By elaborated I mean how it is used and how it is used to calculate time and placement of heavenly bodies. A visitor is bound to hire a guide to understand how the things work.
This astronomical observatory is located at the heart of the city and is walking distance from the city palace.You can purchase tickets to the Jantar Mantar either at the entrance or online. There is also a light and sound show for which tickets can be purchased at the monument. A guide is a must when you visit this place as it is very rich in science and history. There are audio guides also available which explains the significance of each structure and gives a background about astronomy. If you are interested in the movement of the heavenly bodies then you should spend around two hours at this place with the audio guide.
Old astronomical observatory. Well maintained. You can hire a guide who will explain working of all instruments. If you have some knowledge about astronomy, you will be able to understand better.
