The Jantar Mantar illustrates the height at which astronomy or for that matter science reached in India. An intellectually exhilirating experience. And a must visit for anyone going to Jaipur.

really enjoyed walking around here and viewing the incredible structures. The geometry of the place is just fabulous. Tip: Avoid going at dead noon when there are no shadows being cast!

Like a giant children's playground of strange stone shapes but actually a staggering array of precision built stone instruments for measuring the time and positions of the sun and stars. Mind boggling and fascinating. Also beautifully restored and presented.

Simply awe-inspiring science and technology. Relatively well-maintained courtyard and structures. The information signs could definitely use better descriptions and explanations. The short film located in a small temple on the premises is mildly interesting and informative, but at only 10 minutes, it's worth a look....More

Great place. It was kind of overcrowded being a Saturday afternoon. We loved the sun signs section :). My daughter read about all the descriptions on the instruments. Must visit for everyone in Jaipur.

I spent an hour and i took time to ask questions to the guide. and have a little and quiet look around. it is a very nice place indeed. two hours is a lot, then you can rest and look at all instruments in details.
