This tourist hotspot is near the city palace and is again one that should be on the top of your list when you visit Jaipur. The word Jantar Mantar means a calculation instrument, it was used in olden times to predict the position of celestial objects and hence predict the future.


The attractions - The place is filled with a lot of different types of Instruments for activities lie measuring time, location of stars planets suns etc. These are not like the instruments we have these days, they are huge in size and surprisingly very accurate as well.


For Kids it may feel as if you are in a theme park, with rides and slides of different shapes and sizes, adults can also use it like that, I did, kind of brought back the child in me. But this also happens to be a great place for Astronomy enthusiasts keen on learning vedic astrology and astronomy.


Outside the place you will also get miniature versions of the various chakra's and yantras you see in Inside, it is better that you download a manual from the internet to check the chakra and Yantra's usage while visiting them, rest assured you will not be disappointed.


There is also a giant Sun Dial called Samrat Yantra that measures time, it was fun making a time lapse video of the sundial, some of these instruments are actually thought provoking which can rid of some of our prejudices on Vedic culture
