Just as I was reading in my local NATGEO Magazine about an artist named Gabriel Orozco and his house at the sea [also has a function of astronomical observatory built on the model of the 300 years old monument in Delhi, Indija [“The Jantar Mantar”] It says Here that “Jantar Mantar” consists of fourteen geometric devices used for measuring time, forecasting weather changes, predicting behaviour of planets and finding extraterrestrial altitude.

There are great 3D models you can see here and i’m sure that you have conluded by now that this one goes as one of the 7 Wonders of India [Just for the record i think that on all those stone structures should be somewhere engraved somewhat of numbers or letters for pointing]


Now I want to conclude my idea with the picture of the Gabriel Orozco’s house, so here I go. And this is the best part of the post to me because you have a look at the sea, a small house [three rooms with a citchen] BUT with a pool on top… What about that. Great one isn’t it??
