Interesting facts about the Jantar Mantar
In 1974 a unique structure had been raised in the hub of Delhi which is a magnificent epitome of Indian science and mind mingled together in perfect proportion. Situated near the Connaught Place, it is actually an Astronomical observatory that had been elevated by Maharaja Jai Singh of Jaipur. Jantar Mantar in Delhi has a variety of information sources so that one can explore various historic sites through interactive panoramic "VR" photographs, time lapse sequences, 3D models as well as articles, drawings, and historic texts. Yet the main task of Jantar Mantar is to narrate the achievements under the Rajput kings in the field of Astronomy and their attempt for technological progress. There is a history behind this incident. The two pillars on the southwest of Mishra Yantra decide the shortest and longest days of the year. Interestingly, one pillar completely covers the other with its shadow in December while it does not cast any such shadow in June.
