While the interior might leave a little to be desired, the swimming pool atop Observatory House is really all you need to see. Conceptualised by Mexican artist Gabriel Orozco and built by architect Tatiana Bilbao, with reference to the Jantar Mantar Astronomical Observatory, built in Delhi in 1724. The results are extraordinary and inspiring.
