Jantar Mantar, Delhi

One of my favorite places to photograph in India is known as Jantar Mantar.. there were 5 of them built around India in the early 18th century.. I have been to two of the most popular ones.. the photos here are from Delhi. Jantar Mantar is a collection of astronomical instruments that are intended to measure the positions of the planets, sun and stars… it’s absolutely beautiful.. with the various lines, shadows, and geometric silhouettes, I could’ve stayed there for hours. I would loved to do a fashion shoot there someday.
