In between the daily noise of activities of CP is peaceful place, holding on the history of science in India. the Jantar mantar is smaller version of Jantar mantar of Jaipur. It is nice, peaceful, clean and green spot in the center of delhi. A must visit for kids during winter vacations.

UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE site well worth a visit on a sunny day. On a sunny day you may tell the time by the shadows. An ancient astronomical site which measured time to within 2 seconds. Great with no computer. Educational and well worth a visit.

Indeed in the middle of the commotion of Connaught place there is a wonderful park where the sundials have been placed. A historical value with Mughal touch

We walked from our hotel one cool morning finding free access due to currency crisis. This Tentative Unesco site(one of 5 built by Maharaja Jai Singh) was under some reconstruction but the park setting was nice and quiet with visitors strolling among the 13 architectural astronomy instruments. It contrasts with his in Jaipur that has made the Unesco list.

There are less place for childrens to satisfy their curiosity compare to other leisure placea, This type of place is equally important for current and next generation. This is best place to explain astronomy with architectural buildings. But very disappointed with all are not in good condition and under renovation.

This 3 century old observatory is an example of richness in our culture and it is one of the 5 such observatories built by Sawai Jai Singh of Jaipur 18th century. All kids must be made to visit the Jantar Mantar so that kids know about the progress in astronomical science achieved by India.

Jantar Mantar of Delhi is not as big as Jaipur's Jantar Mantar. The nearest metro station is Janpath metro station. The garden inside is quite beautiful. There are some geographical instruments inside such as Misra Yantra, Ram Yantra etc.

Ancient clock to know time and calender, good to know how in old days such brains exists, and with perfections. Site is under renovations so was NOT allowed to enter in clocks. Would love to visit again after full renovation is complete.

As we are Unesco Heritage Group, Jantar Mantar is one of our must visit venue. We reach around 16:45hrs and closing is at 17:00hrs but they are aware our group is coming and blocked a guide for us. The guide did a beautiful explanation which it made us puzzle and wonder how those days people can calculate the time depending... More
