Jantar Mantar

Jantar Mantar is another masterpiece of Indian architecture made up red sandstone, which showcases the scientific expertise of yesteryears. The Jantar Mantar in Delhi is one of the five observatories built by Sawai Jai Singh II. It was in the year 1724 and located on the Sansad Marg between the Connaught place and the Rastrapati Bhavan.

The name of this is derived from Yantra mean instruments and Mantra meaning formulas hence together form the term Jantar Mantar.
