Deeg Palace was built around 1772 as the summer resort for the Bharatpur rulers. It houses impressive buildings in pink / yellow sand stone / marble and is heavily influenced by Mughal architecture (not surprising since Agra and Fatehpur Sikri are very close). The palace apparently has 2000 fountains (!) that operate from 4 oversized water tanks and sprinkle coloured water. In fact, late in August and on February 4 every year, the fountains come to live on the initiative of the Government Tourist Department. There is a Hanuman Mandir inside the palace and the life size idol, in brownish semi-precious stone wore a happy smile.We spent about 2 hours here and was shown around by an ASI employee (We think) and then embarked on our drive back to Delhi at about 4.45 pm. Barring a bottle neck, the rest of the drive was smooth and we reached Gurgaon at 8.30 pm, Sunday. It wass a perfect trip for two days. It is hard to believe that we had covered such a lot just over a weekend!
