BRIEF HISTORY OF JANTAR MANTAR

              First of all i want to tell you that why it is called jantar mantar? From where this name is derived? Jantar means yantra (instruments) and Mantar means formulae. Actually both these words are from Sanskrit language.  Jantar Mantar contains 13 architectural astronomy instruments. I hope that you all are know that Maharaj jai singh was king of Jaipur and he has built total 5 monuments in India. Jantar Mantar is one of those Monuments of India which was built by Maharaj jai singh.

                 Maharaj jaisingh noticed that present astronomical instruments are too small for taking accurate measurement. And because of this He built very large and accurate instruments which are known as Jantar Mantar. In 1724 Jantar Mantar was constructed in which  stone and marbles are used for whole structure. The Ram yantra, The samrat Yantra, Jayprakash yantra and The mishra yantras are the distinct instruments of Jantar Mantar.
