This is certainly a fascinating exhibit but I think a lot will depend on your interest in the sciences. It was fascinating to think of the technology being employed such a long time ago to estimate time and place. If this is not the kind of thing that turns you on, then you are probably best to look elsewhere.

This goes hand in hand with the city palace. It's interesting enough and considering when it was made, quite advanced. A guide is a must if you're to understand any of it.

I didn't know what I would find at Jaipur, as we decided to go there suddenly. When the driver took us to this place, I loved, because there are a lot of astrological things there. We didn't hire any guidance, but if you have money, pay for it! It's amazing the history (i heard somebody's guidance sometimes there rsrs). You... More

We visited the observatory with our very knowledgable guide and we would definitely not have understood what we were seeing or enjoyed this fascinating observatory without the benefit of that guide's help. Once you are given this interesting information, it was really nice to have seen how things work at Jantar Mantar. I also enjoyed the astrological signs and those... More
