Jantar Mantar at Jaipur

Jantar Mantar is a famous astronomical monument built by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II of Jaipur. The observatory at Jaipur in Rajasthan is a lucid reflection of his belief in the importance of astronomy and passion for architecture.

It is described as the most surreal and logical landscape in stone, this bewildering piece of art brings curves, corners, colours and the cosmos, all in one complex.

Recently UNESCO has been declared Jantar Mantar as a World Heritage Site, as it is one of the most significant and the best preserved Indian historic observatories.
