Jaunting at Jantar Mantar RoadJantar Mantar Road offers a nice glimpse of Delhi. It’s a place that allows you to walk around casually and feel good about being in the capital. If you get down at Central Secretariat metro station and walk a little distance, there are quite a few interesting strolls around—Janpath market, Rajpath, and India Gate.
It was a random Sunday, and I did not plan on anything specific. I was walking toward the Janpath market, still thinking where I should be going for some good pictures, and the next moment I found myself heading to Jantar Mantar. The site comprises 13 architectural astronomy instruments. It was built with the aim of compiling astronomical tables, which would foresee the times and movements of the sun, moon and planets.
If you are at Jantar Mantar Road, take an insightful walk at Jantar Mantar for about 20-25 minutes. Learn about its unique history and take back some beguiling impressions. There are quite a few hangouts on the road. I usually prefer a good cup of coffee after a photography session. So, I would suggest Barista would be a decent place for a chat and quick run-through of the day gone by. There is also Hotel Park right across the road from Jantar Mantar.
