Exploring Jantar Mantar...

The other day while running an errand, we stopped by Jantar Mantar. It's a place I've been wanting to see but never managed to make time to visit. So, with the boys and my mom, we had a fun morning. 

Jantar Mantar was built in 1725 by Jai Singh II, the ruler of Jaipur, as an open-air observatory of the sun, moon and stars. It was also used to calculate time. Apparently, it was pretty accurate.

The kids loved walking up and down the stairs and exploring the depths of these huge cement structures.

Arthur found a special spot.
Then some friends found him.
And, one by one they got a photo with the boys (all in all at least 10 different pics were taken).
Jantar Mantar is a fun place to visit and the boys did not want to leave! We will definitely be back soon.
