Una referència astronòmica. Jantar Mantar


The Jantar Mantar is an observatory, which has many astronomical instruments for computation in astronomy and astrology. The name is derived from two Sanskrit words; Jantar means instrument or machine while Mantar means calculate. This means that Jantar Mantar literally means calculation machine. There are many Jantar Mantar built in India, they are in Jaipur, New Delhi, Ujjain, Varanasi and Mathura. These are monuments built by Rajput King, besides the astronomical and astrological calculation they also are major tourist attractions. The Jantar Mantar at Jaipur was built close to the former Royal palace and is located in the city of Jaipur very close to the popular Hawa Mahal and the City Palace.
