It's a wonderful place. Must visit this place. Must haired tour guide so it will be batter to under stand all the things. It is a beautifully maintained small complex with yellow painted walls. It's a historical site famous among tourists. It contains a number of different devices that were used to measure time in different eras in the Indian history. It has a nominal ticket price of ₹15 for Indians but about ₹225-250 for foreigners. Nice place to visit. We had an incredible experience visiting this observatory and seeing the accuracy of the astronomical instruments built around 300 years ago
It's one of the biggest open astronomical lab of India built in Jaipur by the ruler of Jaipur. The infrastructure made to know the time is superb. One can know time by seeing the shadow of sun on the structure designed to check the time. One can also understand the things of this historical monuments by listening & watching the audio and video established inside a hall at this place. If this review helpful to you, please press like.
