A famous city in the northern part of the country, Jaipur is dotted with historical monuments that portray the glorious past of the city. Standing tall in the Pink City, these monuments are reminiscent of the departed era of gallant Rajput warriors. These monuments not only hint towards the artistic bent of mind of the Rajput clan of warriors but also illustrate their intellectual powers.

The famous Jantar Mantar observatory located in the heart of the Jaipur city is one such monument that suggests that the person who got it established was an intellect. Constructed by Sawai Raja Jai Singh II, this observatory is useful in the calculations of time, longitudes, latitudes, position of sun and other stars and for the prediction of the arrival of rains.
