Due to Dharna and start of procession, this place is in news many times. Anybody visiting Delhi is curious to visit this place. This place shall be visited with guide so that you can understand the instruments and their usage. Jaipur Astronomical garden is bigger, well maintained and have better instruments.

The place is perfect for entertainment and learning experience. Lawns are pretty relaxing place for kids. Entry has a 10Rs ticket for adults only. Few structures are closed for renovation and few are closed partially so it's difficult to get a full working experience. It would have been better if there were more information shows

Amazing Architecture that measures time, the angle of celestial bodies, measurement of latitudes and longitudes. It's all a wonder how much ahead of time these people were!
