JANTAR-MANTAR, Jaipur,  UNESCO World Heritage (Monument) Site  2010.
Virhat Samrat YantraV

The Jantar  Mantar,  in  Jaipur,  is an astronomical observation site built in the early 18th century. It includes a set of some 20 main   fixed instruments. They are monumental examples in masonry of known instruments but which in many cases have specific characteristics of their own. Designed for the observation of astronomical positions with the naked eye, they embody several architectural and instrumental innovations. This is the most significant, most comprehensive, and the best preserved of India’s historic Observatories. It is an   expression of the astronomical skill and cosmological concepts of the court of a scholarly prince at the end   of the Mughal  period.
