The Jantar Mantar in Jaipur. This is one of 5 observatories built by Sawai Jai Singh. Built between 1728 and 1734, the Mantar is a series of different astronomical instruments. The instruments are still incredibly accurate at telling the time, the season, the date, etc.

The Dome in the Desert by Wendell Burnette via Archdaily

“A glass house in the desert? Was it an architectural caprice, a folly, or was it a solution to the problems of desert living whose appropriateness is still not recognized?
