A scientific marvel

Children should visit to understand the old valuable systems and techniques. Historical monument. Though most of the part is not working due to buildings constructed around this monument. The guide insisted us to visit Jaipur to see the working Jantar Mantar.

The history behind of this site is really interesting......how to measure the time and the distance between planets and so on. Sadly is not in a good shape and needs a bit more TLC form teh city.

If you really want to awe about how our forefathers mastered the art of science, not with pen and paper, but with tall structures and architecture, then this is the right place to be. Play with shadows and depth and enjoy a nice hour.
