Jantar Mantar, one of five open-air astronomy sites built by Maharaja Jai Singh II, contains instruments once used to revise the calendar and astronomical tables. Built in the 18th century, the facility allowed scientists to observe movements of the sun, moon, and planets. During your visit, look for individual instruments like Samrat Yantra, a huge triangle used as an equal hour sundial, as well as Misra Yantra, which measures the longest and shortest days of the year. Detailed descriptions in English accompany each instrument, so you may not need to hire a guide.

Jantar Mantar Reviews
Une belle arnaque rien à voir , on a rien compris et l'entrée est excessivement chère à fuir ne vous déplacez pas pour voire ça more »A nice scam nothing to do, we understood nothing and the entrance is excessively expensive to flee do not move for even that
コンノートプレイスに近いので、行きやすいと思います。 私はアグラセンキバオリから歩いていきました。 敷地内にはそれぞれに案内板があり、丁寧に説明されてます。 が、私の語学力と物理知識が乏しいからか、あまり理解できませんでした。 最終的には幾何学的なアートを鑑賞しているようでした。 more »The location is very convenient. I walked from Agrasenquibaori. There is a guide board in each site, and it is explained politely. But I couldn't understand it because my language skills and physical knowledge were scarce. In the end, they seemed to appreciate geometric art.
I have never seen before this type of modern architecture, who's significance is not known to many people that it was used to measure the 1. Real time of the day, 2. Time before sun rise or subset, 3. Local time at different places, 4. Height of sun from Earth 5. Distance of different planet and galaxies etc. and many more I was amazing to see and know about it, and I feel myself proud as an Indian. But govt. need to keep it care and maintained it properly as it is one of the oldest and archaeologist monument of our nation.
The place holds scientific importance. Though situated in the heart of the city it is very badly maintained. The monuments need repairing and painting. The garden area could be more nicely modified to make it more beautiful. It is a nice place to spend valuable time in group.
