I thought I'd reply to this, even though the last post was 6 years ago.  

I visited the Jantar Mantar last year and found it fascinating.  The 19 monuments were completed in 1734 which makes it all the more amazing. 

This one intrigued me for a while, then I realised the answer.  Two sundials, built back-to-back, one for the northern hemisphere and one for the southern.  But there are two days of the year when neither are able to tell the time.

If you're ever in Jaipur, India, do visit if you get the chance.
