Jantar Mantar observatory, Delhi, India. This observatory consists of stone astronomical instruments (yantras), constructed to allow observation of celestial objects, measurement of local time, and to predict the times and movements of the Sun, Moon and planets. It is one of five similar astronomical sites (all called Jantar Mantar) that were constructed in west central India between 1724 and 1734 for Maharaja Jai Singh II. This site is one of the best preserved.
