Jantar Mantar (Jaipur) – UNESCO World Heritage Centre

The highlight of ¬†my recent trip to Jaipur was my visit to Jantar Mantar. ¬†Jantar means “Instrument” & Mantar means “Formula”.The¬†Jantar Mantar¬†is a collection of architectural astronomical instruments, built by¬†King¬†Jai Singh II¬†between 1727 and 1734.¬†This place is so fascinating unlike anything I have ever seen before.
There are huge sun-dials to track the time to an accuracy of 2 seconds.  One particularly interesting  instrument was a pair of huge segmented portions of the sky in concave form into the ground. The sun passes from one part to the other each hour , tracking which constellation the sun is in.
Though I am not really an expert at it and  will not be able to explain all pictures in detail, however this is an attempt to show Jantar Mantar from how I saw it. For more details on Jantar Mantar Click Here

A walk through Kitsch Mandi

Flea markets these days are becoming the treasure trove of all things quirky and kitschy. I like how these flea markets introduce us artists who are designing incredibly creative stuff.
Last Sunday I went to one such flea market ‚ÄďKitsch Mandi in Bangalore. Eclectic mix of products drenched in loud colors and patterns just attract you towards them. It was fascinating to see how there ¬†was a kitsch twist to the simplest of garments, accessories and home decorating items.
