It consists of 13 architectural astronomy instruments. The site is one of five built by Maharaja Jai Singh II of Jaipur, from 1723 onwards, revising the calendar and astronomical tables.

The essential purpose of the Jantar Mantar was to accumulate astronomical tables which in turn would help predict the time and movement of the celestial bodies such as the sun, moon and other planets.

why we don’t find our tea or coffee sweet once we have it after eating something relatively sweeter. ⁉️*

When we eat a lot of sweets, your taste buds get used to that amount of sweetness. This is called sensory fatigue and happens with not just your taste buds but all of your senses.

Our sensory organs receive sensory forward information from them brain and the body acts on these messages. Once your brain becomes accustomed to a constant signal, it tends to ignore it, and focuses on looking for more pronounced changes. This is the reason why we don’t find our tea or coffee sweet once we have it after eating something relatively sweeter.

The Eagle bird is, as you said heavier than the chicken, but flies at a height of on an average of 3500 m. Even without flapping it can go on without decrease in height because it uses the force of warm-air below it. eagles which show flight rarely lasts longer than 4–6 hours.
