    Jantar Mantar

    Jantar Mantar is currently a popular tourist attraction in Jaipur and a pioneering source for amateur astronomy students.



    Why to visit this place

    Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh, the monarch of Jaipur, was one of India's greatest theorists. The Maharaja created five astronomy instruments to investigate space after completing the planned city of Jaipur, as well as countless other scientific and architectural landmarks. Jantar Mantar, which meaning Calculating Instrument, was the name given to these instruments. The largest of these instruments is in Jaipur, and it has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Jantar Mantar is made up of fourteen geometric devices that measure time, predict eclipses, and track the position of stars as well as the Earth's rotation around the sun. The Samrat Yantra, the observatory's greatest instrument, was used to predict time.
