Maan Mandir Ghat : Varanasi

With other important Ghats in Varanasi, Man Temple Ghat, which was earlier than 1600, was built by Raja Sawai Man Singh. In the name of Man Singh, this ghat was restored in the 19th century. Usually it is known as Someshwar Ghat, in which there is a small observatory at the northern end of the Ghat, which was established by King Jayasingh of Jaipur. Famous temples such as Shantuldant Vinayaka, Rameshwar and Someshwar Temple are situated near this Ghat. Mahal Man Mahal, known as Mann Mandir, is situated near famous Dashashmeshhgh Ghat, five kilometers from famously famous railway station of Varanasi. Located on the west bank of river Ganga adjacent to Varanasi's famous Dashashmeshh Ghat, Mann Palace is a beautiful example of Mughal-Rajput architecture with stone-made windows and painted terrace.

But the observatory was circa 1737 AD. Was added by Sawai Jai Singh II (1686-1745 AD), who himself was a great astronomer, founder of Jaipur city and descendant of King Man Singh. In addition to inventing many instruments, tables and sources, five masonry observatories in Delhi, Jaipur, Ujjain, Varanasi and Mathura have been built. These are popularly known as Jantar Mantar, which is a corrupt form of the Yantra - the mantra that means calculations with the help of the instruments. The observatory of Jagannath, an astronomer in the temple of Man Mahal, was prepared by an astronomer and this work was executed by an architect of Jaipur by a person named Sardar Mohan. The emperor's instrument (small and big) is the main tool of this observatory, azimuth instrument, nadivali device, chakra yantra and Dakshina wall masonry.
