  • An observatory serving people of a different era and to this day relevant in the age of telescopes and computers. There are dials which measure time to the accuracy of 20 secs. The seasons and the position of the sun determining the zodiac signs and other astronomical concepts so nicely erected and found from these machine structures. It's amazing how talented and far sighted people were there who could predict even without watches,and latest gadgetry. Hats off to those scientists and the rulers of that time.

  • Good place to visit, nice instruments developed by the then king to read about stars and they locations which is linked to astronomy. I had a very difficult time to understand the instruments. The guides there doesn’t help you much. Try to take audio tour. May it will help you to understand a bit.
