The Jantar Mantar in Jaipur consists of 19 major devices, each for a very specific purpose. The Samrat Yantra, the largest sundial in the world, is the most important of these.

Under the absence of light and sound planning, the observatory is closed for about an hour. Wait for the time of the show, take a stroll around the market and shop.
At the entrance or online, you can purchase tickets to Jantar Mantar. A sound and light presentation is also offered, which includes the purchase of tickets from the museum.
