The one of the many Jantar Mantars is here near Connaught Place in Delhi. This was my second visit to this ancient archeological wonder. A clock is what it is. Made probably couple of centuries ago, this man made clock is based primarily on the shadow of the sun's rays and calibrated to give you the time! A great invention,... More

A wonderful piece of architecture to measure time accurately with the help of position of the sun. Astronomical brilliance... There are two such structures, one in Delhi and the other in Jaipur.

If you like science, especially astronomy, this place will utterly astound you. There are numerous astronomical instruments built in very large scale for accuracy.

it is also another showcase of ancient Indian knowledge. the 'rajpoot rajas', who were lord of delhi & suburban areas before any middle eastern invaders took the throne of India over, built this place for astronomical research & forecasting. the machines and arrangements situated here are the most bigger brothers of the miniatures we use these days. :)
