“Excellent place fallen on neglect”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Want to learn how to ruin a masterpiece. Welcome to Jantar Mantar. What a piece of genius and so utterly ruined by the ASI, Govt of India and the custodians of heritage. Had it been anywhere else they would have made it their showcase for tourists.

“Must Visit Place in Jaipur”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

A must visit place in jaipur, do include in your itinerary. Very much astonished to see how accurately time can be shown just by the position of Sun Ray. Also different clock and machines which can actually make the " Kundli" of a new born. Nice Place

So unusual and interesting, especially after you've seen a million palaces! Go on a sunny day to fully appreciate it.

“Observatory”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

As far as Observatories go Jantar Mantar is very interesting. It is unbelievable to think they were built in the first half of the 18th century. You must have a knowledgeable guide to give you the tour. An interesting visit.
