The postcard sundial is designed for Bangalore. Perforations are provided for creating a gnomon by folding along the dashed lines. The gnomon stands vertically supported by the wedge, also made available, by perforations. The gnomon should point to north precisely. The shadow reads the local time. One needs to add 19minutes to get the Indian standard time. (Rs 5/-) There is a provision to use it for latitudes up to 18 degrees. A vertical sundial is on display at the park.
