Jantar Mantar - Jaipur, Jaipur

4.2
A site dedicated to the study of astronomy, Jantar Mantar - Jaipur holds a place on the World Heritage List and plays home to a number of observational instruments. Visit the site, considered the finest of the nation's historic observatory facilities, and wander among 20 different astronomical structures, including a giant sundial topped with an observation deck. You'll find that these monuments, spread out across the complex's grassy grounds, allow for astronomical observation with the naked eye rather than a telescope. Consider visiting with a local guide to find out more about each instrument.

  • An Observatory so not easy to find. There are all the zodiac signs and many other attractions that cannot be found elsewhere. To visit

  • Accurate to 0.5 seconds, its amazing how without the use of complicated modern equipment, pure geometry was applied to measure time.  more »
  • Visit this place without a very good fond if possible guide to astronomy can be a big disappointment, these monumental instruments without any explanation on their operation are not of great interest if not look at the impressive quality of manufacturing (engravings of the ticks). Being stayed in November the heat was not a problem but I imagine there must be all summer because the place must quickly become a furnace. So to see but really not essential! MM

  • I personally enjoyed myself here quite a lot. Anyone who is interested in science, physics, astrology, history, or architecture would find Jantar Mantar particularly enticing. This observatory is located in the Pink City district of Jaipur. Foreigners with a student card can benefit from purchasing a 2-day sightseeing composite ticket (to the observatory and numerous other places) for only 200 rupees. Here you will also find views of Amber Fort. There are 12 main mechanisms, with most used to pin-point celestial bodies and the time. Each mechanism has a sign explaining its functions, but there are also guides available for an extra fee. A great sliver of history and a very interesting place to experience.
  • It is an exemplary example of great Indian science which could predict time accurately based on sun and moon, and solar system elements including stars and planets positioning without the use of any modern gadgets. There is so much to learn here and have proud in Indian science which was way ahead in ancient age. It's popular spot for researchers and tourists. Must to take place for kids to learn very different and advanced perspective of science.
  • Awesome place to visit for tourists. Ancient architect well preserved and maintained. Many more places connected to visit near by for tourists. A good place to hang out for getting over tiered work load. Jantar Mantar is situated in City area so no need to get far away from city to visit the places. Public transport or rikshaw are also easily available at the place for travelling to other destinations.
  • One of the best places in Jaipur! Do have a guide. It costs you ₹200 for 4 people! And the way they explain stuff is just amazing. You feel proud to be an Indian to witness such a Marvel. All the structure has its own significance! Enjoy your time here. The entrance is ₹50 for Indians and ₹200 for other nationals! If you liked this review please give a thumbs-up below! 👇
  • Very brilliantly made structures. An example of super intelligence of our ancestors. Do take a guide along with u while visiting otherwise u won't be able to understand. But guide rates are high! Clean campus. Eatables not allowed inside. There is a canteen inside but with very limited options.
