If you love astronomy then Jantar Mantar is the perfect place for you as it houses various astronomical instruments. It is considered as one of the largest observatories ever built. Reflecting an ideal blending of science, religion and art, the Jantar Mantar is the name given to a series of five magnificent structures built in Jaipur, Ujjain, New Delhi, Mathura and Varanasi. These structures were built by Maharaja Jai Singh II between 1728-1734 CE.
The name Jantar Mantar is derived from the Sanskrit words “Yantra” meaning instruments and “Mantra” meaning formula. Later ‘Yantra’ was replaced with ‘Jantar’ meaning ‘magical’. Among the five observatories, the one located at Jaipur is the largest and boasts of having the world’s largest sundial “Samrat Yantra”. It was added to World Heritage Sites of India in 2009. Located near to City Palace, Tripolia Bazaar, Jantar Mantar is a must visit sight of the Pink City.
