Photographer's Note

This is at jantar mantar and the same place as the shot by Aadil, except this is composed differently!!

Jantar Mantar is in the modern city of New Delhi, Delhi. It consists of a collection of architectural astronomy instruments, built by Maharaja Jai Singh II of Jaipur, for his own use, from 1724 onwards. The primary purpose of the observatory was to compile astronomical tables, and to predict the times and movements of the sun, moon and planets. Some of these purposes nowadays would be classified as astrology.

I have been to this place often...I just love the colors and the fabulous compos one can derive, be they abstract or of a graphic nature.

Jai Singh later had another similar observatory, now known by the same name, built for him at Jaipur.

Today the observatory is mainly a tourist attraction, and is significant in the history of astronomy.
