this was totally bonkers. You just can't get your head around the maths involved to get this place off the ground. Its far more impressive than the one in Delhi. Loved it.

The place itself is interesting. My guide had his spiel memorized in English but otherwise didn't speak any English. He raced through things so fast I couldn't catch a single word and since he didn't speak English I couldn't actually ask him to slow down. Lest I be pegged as an ugly American, I've been to India many times, don't expect people to bend to me, and understand some Hindi and certainly Indian accents. I'd rather have had less information and more communication. I had to go read up on what I'd seen afterwards.

This is wonder full piece of ancient science. The Samrat Yantra can calculate time from sun up +/- 2 min from sun. There are more yantras which are still useful for astrological importance. It is recommended that if you really want to know and gather information regarding Jantar Mantar, please hire a certified/authorized guide who will explain the working of all yantras. This comes under Amber Development Authority now. Previously it was under State Archaeological Department and being Engineer I was in-charge for civil maintenance of this monument.
