Jantar Mantar

Considered a great Indian masterpiece, the Jantar Mantar is part of a series of five astrological buildings constructed by Maharajah Jai Singh II. Jantar Mantar is the largest of the five structures.

The 14 geometric devices of this remarkable structure were extensively used to measure time, predict the behaviour of planets, forecast weather and identify extraterrestrial altitude.

These structures not only showcase the impressive architectural skills of the Indian people but also display their scientific prowess.

National Museum

Five millennia of Indian history can be discovered at the National Museum. The collection of more than 150,000 pieces of art, artefacts and Central Asian treasures is acknowledged as among the finest in the world.
