  • Wow! Great piece of architecture. This was built by the king of Jaipur, and this place has multiple observatories. Inside the campus there is a small room which shows video about all the projections and how they work. What I liked the most was the central dial. If you observe carefully you ll find it still has markings to represent minutes hours and seconds and it tells almost the correct time. And this was built when science m tech was not as developed as it is now. But closes by 5pm .
