Here is the option for the question :

- Tehran, Iran
- Jaipur, India
- Dammam, Saudi Arabia
And, the answer for the the question is :
[STC0021] The Samrat Yantra, located in Jaipur, India, has been recognized as the biggest sundial in the world for the past over 300 years.
The stone sundial is reported to be able to read time with an accuracy of two seconds, despite its towering height of more than 89 feet.
It was constructed entirely out of stone.
It’s one of several astronomical instruments within the Jantar Mantar observatory in Jaipur, which was built in the early 18th century under the rajah of Jaipur, Sawai Jai Singh II.
According to World Atlas, Jai Singh oversaw the construction of five observatories of this kind across the Indian subcontinent.
The remaining four may be found at Delhi, Mathura, Ujjain, and Varanasi respectively.
Jaipur’s Jantar Mantar is the largest, though, and features 20 or so stone instruments that were designed to predict eclipses, track the movement of constellations, and tell time.
The Jaipur observatory was deemed worthy of inclusion on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites on account of the instruments and the level of innovation that they represent.
