India, part 8: Jaipur: Jantar Mantar
updated Jan. 15, 2005
Jantar Mantar observatory, built between 1728 and 1734 by Maharaja
Sawai Singh in the early
eighteenth centure for astronomical/astrological observations, is one
of the world's great sculpture gardens. But the sculptures are
precision scientific instruments! The images below are somewhat
repetitive, but I found the groupings of people fascinating.
