Description

Founded in 1726 by Jai Singh II, Jatar Mantar is the best preserved of his five observatories. There is a separate purpose for each of the eighteen instruments, such as forecasting eclipses and monitoring astrological bodies. The most remarkable is the huge Samrat Yantra sundial that travels up to 13 feet (4 meters) every hour, with a shadow.
