  • Sick big astronomy stuff. Very interesting. Nice open plan garden. Just wish I would've had more time here, probably worth getting a guide too. Very good

  • Beauty of a place, must go if you have children going to elementary or middle school. A lot of great instruments using sun dials created almost 400 years old that the kings of those days used for timekeeping and astrology. Do take a tour guide. These guys are good, they take around 200 rupees but do a good job of explaining the instruments. Also, they are not brokers who pose as guides but later take you to a boutique shop and try to sell stuff to you.

  • It's amazing to see ancient Indian technology. I would recommend a tourist guide app to know about the equipments in detail. I used trip my way app. Don't miss the audio video presentation room where they explain about the equipments.

  • Loved to see things Indians of that time have created. What's been built was way ahead of their time. We keep on admiring things built outside country, but in India there is lot to see & lot to explore. Loved the place.

  • Its useful if you are able to understand the instruments. Or else u need a guide who will charge a lot. We went in the afternoon and because it was too sunny and secondly, we didn't hire any guide. Hence, couldn't pay much attention to the instruments. If one can understand how to use those instruments, it is a good place
