  • An observation with impressive fine astronomical instruments. The big time instrument can measure down to 20 seconds of a day with sunlight. The site is well maintained and worth a visit if you are in Jaipur. It is not very big and it should not take more than an hour to visit. Make sure you come on a sunny day because you will not see much if cloudy.

  • Mind blowing. Use of science n astrology way back then... To calculate time, ascent Decent if celestial bodies, based on specific birth signs. To the precision of 2 seconds??? Can it be more intriguing?? World's largest sun dial. India's pride

  • A must visit place in Jaipur. It's a piece of architectural work, science and art. Don't forget to take a guide. The entire tour takes less then an hour and an official guide will charge you Rs. 200 for a couple, 300 for 5-15 ppl. There is an audio guide too, they give you a wearable device for Rs. 200. Best time to visit is around morning till noon. After that it becomes too sunny and hot. If you have kids this is the first place you should visit in Jaipur.
