Jaipur, the Cosmic City, inspiring generations of scientists, artists and designers to understand and relate the the world.
The Cosmic City and its instruments.
"Jantar Mantar is a collection of nineteen architectural astronomical instruments you can walk in and around"
Jaipur is designed on a nine square grid connecting with the cosmos. Not only can you visit astrologers and have your palm read, but you can explore the cosmos through physical instruments in Jantar Mantar.
Commissioned by the King of Jaipur, Jantar Mantar is a collection of nineteen architectural astronomical instruments you can walk in, around, and touch, to better understand your context in the world and beyond. Find your zodiac instrument, or observe numerous sundials, where the sun tells time on large and small scales to striking degrees of accuracy.
Included on the site is the largest sundial on the planet. Structures are made of local stone and marble, expertly carved and marked to be read on a scientific and metaphysical level.
Don’t miss this astounding wonder.
This Unesco World Heritage site is not to be missed. A journey point for world travelers from the fields of fashion, art, and science through the 20th and 21st Centuries.
