This park had a collection of all sorts of astronomical instruments among other things. Each one had an explanation as to how it's used so if you're interested you can learn a lot, however, it's also fun just to go around and look at the structures. It's right next to the Pink Palace so I'd worth a quick stop to... More

Besides its name, which provides hours of pronunciation-fun (we settled on Junter Munter), this astronomical park full of whopping, wacky instruments is one of the Pink City's finest sights. Jai Singh's indulgent hobby provided his capital with an alarmingly futuristic, proto-sculpture park which is a photographers dream. Mathematicians would get the most from the place, with a further understanding of... More

The observatory is a few hundred years old and some of instruments are still working. I particularly liked the sundial which can still tell the time to an accuracy of half a minute.

It was interesting to see these huge sun dials etc. But unfortunately, it was raining while we were there. As our guide said, "No sun, no fun." But still cool to see them and think of the folks designing them so long ago.

A must see in Jaipur and the biggest in India. I was lucky enough to visit it with the holy sun shining brightly in the sky, although its scorchingly hot, my local tour guide, Sanjay, explained and demonstrated each instrument and since its ancient-old, you'll appreciate its function and be impressed by it only when there is SUN. So be... More
