If you are into this sort of thing, then this place is an absolute marvel of the brain power that existed many years ago to understand and predict the movement of the sun - amongst other things. Brilliant!

The site has numerous incredible sun dials etc and if you have a guide to explain their use and function, it is quite fascinating. They are so accurate and so huge. Also quite interesting is the zodiac signs which have their characteristics explained. Our guide asked for our date and time of birth and then told us some amazingly accurate things about where we worked etc - quite astonishingly accurate. Well worth a visit.

We were a bit over temples and forts so visiting this amazing site and learning about astronomy and astrology was terrific. The relevance to modern day matching making and arranged marriages gave me another insight into Indian culture. And the accuracy of something built so long ago, well before computers, is amazing. There is also a very good gift shop there.

Jantar Mantar was fantastic, every beautiful structure built for the purpose of understanding the celestial bodies. They are precise and organic, and visually stunning, if I hadn't learnt anything from this place, simply seeing it would have been enough

This is an incredible set of astronomical instruments. Jantar Mantar has several astronomical instruments which will keep you busy for more than one hour. Like to see magic of old time go and watch there really very nice.

Very interesting place to visit, with large scale astronomical instruments to read the skies. Amazing how long ago this was built and how advanced their knowledge of astronomy was to have constructed something so accurate at this scale. The signs are not adequate so it is best to hire a guide (once you are inside -- the unofficial guides outside are all touts that want to take you shopping) or download an audio that explains what you are seeing.

Jantar Mantar in located in the centre of the Pink City in the Palace complex. It comprises dozens of astronomical structures, dating back hundreds of years, for measuring the positions of heavenly bodies. Even if you're not interested in astronomy, the impressive and sizeable structures are architecturally and aesthetically amazing. All set in beautifully tended gardens. I've been back each time I visit Jaipur.

A historical monument of its kind, engineering master piece. I would suggest do take a guide for at least this place as you will need explanation to understand the structure.

This is a masterpiece, well preserved historical evidence that gives glimpse of scientific advancement our ancestors have made in the field of astronomy and astrology..its amazing to know that clock at jantar mantar were used as recently around until independence and they are so accurate. The clock, the measurment scales and instruments...it all look amazing and advance considering the period and are well preserved

Very interesting visit, The sun dials are from the small to the gigantic with steps up to the top ( the public cannot go up though ) They were almost accurate to this day. There was a lovely gent who showed us around and told us about our horoscope which was very interesting, if you know your time and place of birth. The marble work was stunning and so accurate
