Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, who was a learned man and an astronomer, sent his envoys to various parts of the world. They came back with numerous manuals and astronomical tables. In addition they also brought abundant information related to the developments made in the field of astronomy. One of these manuals was La Hire's "Tables" which impressed the king. Maharaja Sawai Jai Sing II ordered that the observatory should be built according to the data available in this manual. Interestingly, after the completion of Jantar Mantar it was discovered that the observatory was more accurate than the Table itself.

Jai Singh himself designed the observatory and got it built it with stone and masonry instruments. The observatory incorporates multiple buildings of unique form, each with a specialized function for astronomical measurement.
