I've been to Jantar Mantar twice, both times in the hot midday sun and both times after an exhausting visit to Amber Fort. So whenever we come here, I am out of enthusiasm and energy to appreciate the impressive science of this park containing very old and accurate sun dials and other giant astronomical calculators. Maybe I needed to visit this first in the day to appreciate it. Maybe I am just not that interested in astronomy.

This is a collection of restored but working astronomical instruments. Great spot for black and white photos with all the interesting angles and shadows. We thought it was better than the adjacent city palace museum. Fewer people harassing us too.

the construction which gave the right time with the help of sun's shadow was outstandng. the devices which were setup to study astronomy at such early ages gave a good view of the overall advancement in technology in india

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.
