The Jantar Mantar Observatory is an old observatory that includes several different apparatus that were used in the olden times to practice astronomy. Built in the time of the royals of Rajasthan, The observatory is a part of a group of observatories all over India that are enlisted as World heritage sites. This is because they were used to predict the movement of the celestial bodies long before modern science making them an extremely significant development in the history of science.
Marble Sandstone and bronze make up the Jantar Mantar in Jaipur. This ancient wonder could do it all from predicting eclipses to keeping time. What is amazing is that a very detailed analysis of the structures and positions of planets could be done with the structures in this place. The largest of these is the SamratYantra, which notifies the time of the day. Some of the equipment is also said to have been used to predict monsoons.

Amazing place to be with kids having an inclination towards science. Was pretty amazed at unique ways of measuring time and planetary positions which people in the past used, despite the lack of any advanced equipments. Also, the audio tour is not worth it. They would be speaking almost the same thing written over boards there, but as a story. Skipping that and wandering at your own pace seemed a better option to me. A great place to go, but do keep an eye on the weather as it gets pretty hot out there in the open.
One of the best mantained observatory. A guide is must to understand it. Be prepared to spend at least one hour there if you really want to know how knowledgeable and advanced our science was. There are some astrologers who will predict your future for a fee but I did not try them. There is a sun dial accurate to 2 seconds. Amazing.
A place with many giant clocks for different use. I got fascinated by the Supreme Instrument over there which has accuracy of upto 2 seconds. Visit and observe the time. I would suggest to take a guide along with you so as to completely understand all the instruments.
A must visit, especially for those who are interested in Astronomy & architecture. It has so many yantras/instruments which track planetary movements and exact locations. Absolutely amazing place.
You will be really surprised to see the kind of instruments which were used here for astronomical calculation in ancient India. It is a must visit place in Jaipur. Place is having translation desks for foreign languages. Guides can also speak different languages. Food stalls are available inside and the place is calm & quiet.
