  • The road has been repaired and it only takes 39-40 minutes from bharatpur. You need 1-2 hours and it is worth paying a little money for a guide/govt employee. Very pretty, interesting history see othe...  more »

  • The palace is well designed and constructed but the maintenance staff doesn't keep in well condition. I traveled many times but everytime i found less clean.....
  • Good surrounding and garden. One can go for picnic with the family /friends and enjoy this place.
  • The palace with one floor under water to keep the whole palace cool in summers
  • The Palace of fountains.... Deeg is around 40 kms from Bharatpur, and not a very famous tourist attraction. But with half a day in hand, it is a good place to visit from Bharatpur. This is a palace where king of Bharatpur used to live during summer. This palace reveals the scientific sense of people of that age, how they have used water flow as air conditioner, as curtain or as a tool for beautification.
  • While all Forts have a lot in common, its interesting to know the highlights of the place. Most important part is the mechanism in use by the kings to protect the fort and enjoy their kingdom simultaneously. In deeg the under ground place which seems to be floating above water is something definitely unique and shows the traditional Indian Architecture was indeed of top notch. Time spent in deeg was interesting and worth it. While visiting the place ask locals the way to "jal mahal" ... They dont know it as Deeg palace
