You get an insight into the astronomical know-how of medieval period after visiting this place. There are instruments used to precisely measure astronomical events like eclipse dates. Astronomical process are very well depicted here. You get to learn about the different heavenly bodies.

This site provides an insight to the sophistication and celestial/mathematical knowledge of India. There is very limited shade and is extremely hot in Rajasthan's summer months.

This is another place in Jaipur you must visit and you definitely need to hire a guide here (Ask at the ticket counter. Should cost you an additional 100-200 Rs) or you will be completely lost!

Hi, I have discovered that in India, most people have the mentality that tourists should be charged exorbitantly high price ie rob all tourists. Taj Mahal entrance cost locals 15rupees but tourists must pay 200r. I needed a pair of slippers to go into temples because they require us to remove shoes before entering. Upon exit, your favourite walking shoes would have disappeared. My government registered tour guide give personal guarantee that 5000r for one pair of slippers is the lowest price. Prices are fixed and non negotiable. I refused so he took me to several shops. All gave about the same price. Eventually he took me to stalls on road sides and they wanted 1500r. My guide became extremely frustrated and impatient after taking me to 5 locations just to buy slippers. I eventually went to a roadside stall near my hotel to buy a pair of slippers (exactly the same) and it cost me 100r. I then discovered that my guide orchestrated the price (in his language) with all the stalls and shops to charge me 50x more because he gain percentages from the sale. I also discovered at a Indian theatre that he bought the ticket for me and charged me few thousand rupees but it actually only cost few hundred. Yes, this is pervasive throughout India. My advise is NEVER buy anything from shops that your guide takes you to. The Indian government sees it proper to charge tourists alot more than locals then no wonder everyone is out to rob tourists. The question is how to avoid being robbed?

Rs.50/- & Rs.100/- is for audio guide (they give you ear plugs which will tell you about everything inside) If you are visiting Jantar Mantar, any sort of guide- either a human or an audio.
