This area at City Palace was meant for dance. It has four entrance doors for the dancers. These doors are the symbols of four seasons in India. Aru is at the ‘winter door’. During winter season the dancers entered from this door.

This pot has its name in Guinness book for being the biggest pot in the world; made by one of the kings, Madho Singh II

That’s Jantar Mantar. The arrow points towards the north star

That’s the Northern Hemisphere. These days sun doesn’t shine on it as it is towards southern hemisphere.

That’s AM and PM. We were at Jantar Mantar around 3 pm, hence the sun shinning at the pm

And that’s AM.
