Jantar Mantar

India / Asia

Jantar Mantar is in Connaught Place.  It is one of five original equinoctial sundials for ‘measuring the harmony of the heavens’ (of which four still exist) – to measure the time of day, correct to half a second, as well as the declination of the sun and other heavenly bodies.  All the Jantars were built between 1724 and 1735, this one in 1724.  They were constructed by Maharaja Jai Singh II of Jaipur (1688-1743).  

It consists of 13th architectural astronomy instruments.
