“Interesting place”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

This open air observatory was quite Interesting, but you should take a tour/guide to know a bit more about how they have used the instruments. Written explanations are very modest with info.

“A Must See!”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

It's an observatory with gigantic astronomical instruments built between 1727 and 1734 by the Maharaja Jai Singh. Make sure you find a proper guide to give you all the details. My guide was an elderly gentleman who had been guiding there for 38 years and I learnt amazing things from him.

“Ancient wonder”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

You can easily spend up to an hour here looking at each of the highly accurate instruments. It is best that you have a guide to describes each instrument in case you do not have the knowledge before hand.
