Built in 1724, by Maharaja Jai Singh II of Jaipur, Jantar Mantar is an astronomical marvel situated right in the heart of Delhi. It's a phenomenal architectural piece in the form of a gigantic sundial. The monument was originally constructed to reassess the astronomical calendars and charts using 4 principal instruments of the observatory - the Samrat Yantra, the Ram Yantra, Jai Prakash, and the Misra Yantra. Though the accuracy of this place is affected due to tall buildings around it, you cannot afford to miss your visit to this grand sundial.

A tip from HelloTrippeR: Since it's difficult to understand the working of instruments here on your own, paying for a local guide is highly recommendable. Also, make sure that you visit this place on a sunny day as working of most of the instruments here depend on sunlight.
