About Jantar Mantar

Built by Maharaja Jai Singh II of Jaipur, Jantar Mantar was devised to fulfil the need of bigger astronomical instruments. This 18th-century observatory is made entirely of red brick and rubble and is inscribed with scale markings in order to take readings. This historical attraction in Delhi comprises six instruments that appear fascinating for their ingenuity exudes awe. A sundial named Samrat Yantra is the largest instrument present at this location. Others significant devices include Rama Yantra, Misra Yantra and Jai Prakash. However, it is not possible to make accurate observations from here anymore as the place is surrounded by tall buildings. It remains open from sunrise till sunset and you have to pay a nominal entry fee to explore the site.
