Jantar Mantar amazed me by the way it so accurately works even today. The science they had 500 years ago seems so advanced that we can't but help wonder what else we don't realize about that age.

Its a nice old monument with well maintained gardens around it. The best thing about the place is the time monitoring device build in the year 1710. Anyone having interest in science will be inspired visiting this place. Parking is not there so you will have to park your vehicle in Palika and walk.
