Even if you are not into astronomy you will be impressed with what was completed in the late 1700s. Its amazing to think of the precision achieved with the technology of the times and it being bilt in stone.

India Gate candle march and Protest at Jantar Mantar seems to be a hot favourite among all politicians and so called well wishers to India. Though Jantar Mantar is good place to show kids but maintenance out here is not upto mark. It has become more of a garden than anything else.

This is really something when you find out the details. A good guide is essential. Worth spending some time there.

These astronomical instruments are currently being restored as they appear to have been neglected. Without a guide to explain how the instruments work it was a little confusing. The garden was well maintained and was a pleasant place to walk around in.

The architecture of these buildings is very mysterious and if you know what it was meant for, you would spend longer to try and imagine more! Must visit for anyone.

How big are these instrument that sit in the open grass? Was very interesting to look at the Jantar Mantar on our stroll from the over busy and disappointing Connaught Place to the wonderful Parliament Buildings (in addition you loose all the beggars and the vendors that follow you on the road). There are 2 approaches at the place: technical... More

This place is a park at Delhi. You need a guide to explain the intricacies of the construction. Can see once in the day time.

A fun inventive sightseeing trip to get a prospective into astronomy. Find your sign. Surrounded by huge trees. Stairway building was cool.
