  • An observatory serving people of a different era and to this day relevant in the age of telescopes and computers. There are dials which measure time to the accuracy of 20 secs. The seasons and the position of the sun determining the zodiac signs and other astronomical concepts so nicely erected and found from these machine structures. It's amazing how talented and far sighted people were there who could predict even without watches,and latest gadgetry. Hats off to those scientists and the rulers of that time.

  • Well maintained place. Each and every instrument is the true living example​ of man's knowledge and wisdom. How best man can use of his brain is truly depicted in this wonderful place. Created years ago, but still accurate and in working condition. Amazing.

  • Awesome structures. It's incredible that such structures were built about 300 years ago to accurately measure astronomical events. Even though they are huge civil works, markings have been made for accurate measurement. Such places are standing monuments of our proud and ancient Indian heritage.

  • Very nice place to understand the methods used to measure time and celestial bodies... If you are the kind of person who gets bored to read the description and understand it, then go for the guide, or else everything is self explanatory... And they even show a video inside (just ask the security for the video)... Best time to visit would be during the day with a clear sky... Because everything works on the basis of Shadows...

  • Great place for gathering lots of knowledge about astronomy. We can see here the greatest man-made structures and huge instruments for the calculation of astrology. Also food facilities, audio guides, good staff, proper security inside there.The combination of the green parks with observatory make this place incredible. A student can visit this amazing place with very cheap ticket rates on valid school/college ID proof.So if you are going to visit Jantar-Mantar, bring your valid ID proof.
