  • Price for this place is ₹300. Please visit when it's bright sunlight. This is world biggest time watch. The dials tells not just time also the position of Earth and Sun. Knowledgeable and to know about history time line. Guide is must. Good place to bring kids. Even if no guide no problem. Just find one inside with group and stand 🤫😉
