Jantar Mantar - Review
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.
jantar mantar is one of the main tourist attractions to visit and should definitely feature in you Rajasthan Itinerary 2 Weeks

Jantar Mantar, Jaipur Reviews
Play this one of the magical places that I have ever visited in my life this page is totally scientifically Bass instrument are placed over here which are working at present also. this is one of the Miracle and the best represent the mindset of the old people and the Asian time that have situated this over here there that much intelligent. the place can be easily read with the help of text she is playing in as well as local auto rickshaw. Almost in the centre of the city Jaipur it is basically. don't forget to bring College ID card if you are a Indian student you will be getting a Concession of almost 90% in the ticket if you will be carrying your I card.
Enjoyed exploring this unique place. You do not have to be interested in astrology to enjoy this site, but do take the time to listen to the guides and get a basic description of the instruments. Anyone can enjoy this! Such an interesting place with a very knowledgeable guide who explained us the way the monuments on the sites will show the time, the constellations, the astrological signs, etc. Absolutely amazing! A cool exhibition of the large instruments made by the king over 300 years ago, including the worlds largest sundial. They are not really interactive and are to do with astrology/astronomy but are fascinating to see due to how old they are and how accurate they still are.
Absolutely amazing space. Some basics in astronomy would be helpful to better understand the instruments here. You cannot climb or properly observe most of them but those you can access would require some help to decode. I would recommend taking a personal guide here. The ones we saw seemed to discuss each instrument in detail which does not happen on the audio guide. The audio guide is well made and entertaining but I would still recommend he physical one.
Not really a fan of this place especially in summer. There's not much to do here and really they could have done with this place. There are just stationary instruments with background on it with in some plaques.. would have been great if these were working models you could interact with. There's no great photo opportunity either... So if give it a miss of I didn't have time.
Must visit place I'd recommend you to hire a guide tho.. So you can better understand what every construction means and what it is used for They are massive and makes us have a different perspective about the past And you are into horoscope and stuff like that.. Its a best place for you
