The largest and best observatory in the world. Very accurate and amazing instruments built. Alongwith amber and nahargarh forts, a must see for visitors.

Yes, Jaipur was a great astrological centre. Kings supported scholastic experiments. They created architectural beauty around the experiments and allowed the common people to learn about the science involved. Making it a tourist place and opening it for wandering onlookers at a fees is mere tourism source of income with the logic that it supports its maintenance.

Looks like a modern art sculpture park - only of course these are old astrological instruments. Skip the audio tour unless you want really detailed instructions on the purpose and workings of every single thing...But it is a really cool spot.

The structures, the ideas behind the structures. Good visit for people who believe in time, astronomy and universal change.

To enjoy a visit to the World Heritage site of Jantar Mantar, you don’t have to be scientifically oriented, even though the incredible variety of instruments of all shapes and sizes were constructed for use by astronomers and astrologers. The observatory was built towards the end of the great Mughal period after a similar compound was created in Delhi. Marble... More

This is a fantastic sight. Like a gigantic playset. Get the combined ticket and take in some of the other sights in and around Jaipur.

Interesting and very different site in the Centre of the Pink City. We has a guide which brought the place alive but even on your own it is week worth a visit.
