Jantar Mantar, Jaipur Reviews
Awesome place with great stuff to watch good for people who are interested in the solar system and instruments used by the great king for time and observe the stars. You’ll get foreign crowd you don’t have to hire a guide as everything you need to know about the device is mention on the summary boards near the monument. Parking is an issue like other historic places in Jaipur.
I personally enjoyed myself here quite a lot. Anyone who is interested in science, physics, astrology, history, or architecture would find Jantar Mantar particularly enticing. This observatory is located in the Pink City district of Jaipur. Foreigners with a student card can benefit from purchasing a 2-day sightseeing composite ticket (to the observatory and numerous other places) for only 200 rupees. Here you will also find views of Amber Fort. There are 12 main mechanisms, with most used to pin-point celestial bodies and the time. Each mechanism has a sign explaining its functions, but there are also guides available for an extra fee. A great sliver of history and a very interesting place to experience.
It is an exemplary example of great Indian science which could predict time accurately based on sun and moon, and solar system elements including stars and planets positioning without the use of any modern gadgets. There is so much to learn here and have proud in Indian science which was way ahead in ancient age. It's popular spot for researchers and tourists. Must to take place for kids to learn very different and advanced perspective of science.
Awesome place. Loved it.. the city is quite colourful and awesome. Food is a bit spicy here but enjoyed a lot. One of the awesome trips with friends. Everyone should visit it once....
Awesome place to visit for tourists. Ancient architect well preserved and maintained. Many more places connected to visit near by for tourists. A good place to hang out for getting over tiered work load. Jantar Mantar is situated in City area so no need to get far away from city to visit the places.
