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, Jaipur Reviews
A great sight with some very interesting Observatory equipments and Ancient Indian knowledge about Astronomy and Astrology. The place is full of huge structures relating to cosmic observations and each of them has a specific function, though it may not be easy to understand their functions at first. A guide may be useful here if you are interested in knowing the facts and science behind these. Otherwise you may just read the small descriptions there and click some awesome photographs. Food and drinks are also available but I didn't try any so won't comment.
Wow! Great piece of architecture. This was built by the king of Jaipur, and this place has multiple observatories. Inside the campus there is a small room which shows video about all the projections and how they work. What I liked the most was the central dial. If you observe carefully you ll find it still has markings to represent minutes hours and seconds and it tells almost the correct time. And this was built when science m tech was not as developed as it is now.
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.
It was a nice experience. The place was clean and had some proper rules and regulations which has to be followed by all, so there was no mess. Not sure but the ticket price was ₹100/head. P.S : We went there at 12:00pm so we couldn't calculate the time as the sun was on our head 😂. Hope it helps. Thank you. Peace. ☮️
A very interesting place. But you may need a tour guide to make sense of all the structures in the campus. Also it can get pretty hot as it's a open space, so come prepared. It is similar to one in Delhi but this seems better maintained . Also has more time and astronomy prices.
