It is good to see how astronomy needed to be precise because of astrology (which has very important role in India nowdays, too). Not too many different tools for measuring (majority of them are basically same thing set in different way), but it was interesting...More

This was a gem of a place that was suggested by our guide. The astronomical instruments from ancient times are very intriguing and surprisingly precise. Not just a set of sundials.

This monument is located close to the Hawa Mahal. It's an astronomical observatory. Jantar Mantar has several astronomical instruments. These are used to measure time, altitude, eclipse occurrence dates etc. A guide is a must here to get some understanding of the items on display.

Response from Michael H | Reviewed this property |
If the sun is out, you have a knowledgeable guide and interest in astronomy, then 2hrs maximum. To just go through it casually even at a slow pace then 45min max.
What are the timings for the sound and light show?

1830 and 1930. The show is 45 min long, though it'd be a good idea to read up about the instruments rather than seek to understand things through just the SNL show.
What are the guide charges for this place ?
