Late March afternoon visit and it was so extremely hot that we couldn't really see much although we were looking forward to it. Go late in the evening or early morning with a wide brim hat, cover your skin up in loose light colored clothing and take plenty of chilled water.

This museum has various exhibits that track the time, orientation of the plants, position of the star signs etc. The precision of the building of each individual piece of apparatus is amazing. To be honest it's a bit overwhelming and hard to take in everything.

This is an interesting place full of sundials and astrology instruments constructed by a guy seemingly obsessed with measuring time. Many of the installations are fascinating but are hardly self-explanatory. Without a guide, we wouldn't have known what we were looking at. Overall, a really interesting stop with a great view of the Hawa Mahal.

Built in 1724 this observatory was commissioned by the Mugal emperor, a keen astronomer. Fascinating to wander around and see how advanced their science of the heavens was so long ago. You can find your star sign, read all about the various 'instruments' which includes a giant sun dial

We were on a guided tour and enroute to the Palace when we were steered into this UNESCO World Heritage site. What a surprise. A very interesting collection of astronomical instruments and great for some unusual photography. Definitely worth a visit when in the vicinity.
