There are five Jantar Mantar`s in India, of which the largest is in Jaipur which features many instruments along with the world`s largest stone sundial. Jantar Mantar is a UNESCO world heritage site. Between the years 1724 and 1735,  Maharaja Jai Singh II of Jaipur constructed five Jantar Mantars in total, in New Delhi, Jaipur, Ujjain, Mathura, and Varanasi. The instruments at the Jaipur Jantar Mantar are made of stone and are very large structures. To ensure accuracy the structures were first made out of wood and the measurements were adjusted. The primary purpose of the observatory was to compile astronomical tables and to predict the times and movements of the sun, moon, and planets.
