Many cultures built structures in ways that suggest they were in tune with Earth's annual trek around the sun. Other structures appear to take constellations and planets into account.

The title is a little misleading as some of the pictures shown are not truly observatories but structures that probably were oriented to a astronomical concept.

Very interesting photo's. The Mayan Observatory is one of my favorites - I think if you stumbled onto it in the jungle you could be forgiven for thinking you went through a time warp and you were looking at the ruins of a modern observatory. Link

Not quite stumbling thru jungle but that was my first impression when I saw it in person.
