Observatory of Man Singh


Observatory of Man Singh | 20 Onwards

Situated in Varanasi, adjacent to the Dashashvamedh ghat, the Observatory of Man Singh is famous for its masonry observatory. Added to the Man Singh Palace by Sawai Jai Singh in 1737 ADE, the observatory of Man Singh is a sight to behold with painted ceiling and stone balconied windows, which is an accurate representation of Mughal-Rajput architecture. Inside the observatory are instruments which were meant to calculate time, prepare lunar and solar calendar, and study movements, as well as angles of the stars and planets. The main attractions among these instruments are the Samrat Yantra meaning small and huge, Nadivalaya Yantra, Digamsa Yantra, Dakshinottara Bhitti Yantra and Chakra Yantra.

The timings of the Observatory of Man Singh are 8am to 5:30 pm on all days of the week.
