  • 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
  • very old suface is Deeg Palace is a palace 32 km from Bharatpur in Rajasthan, India built in 1772 as a luxurious summer resort for the rulers of Bharatpur State. The palace was in active use till the early 1970s in rajstan india
  • 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!
  • Hindu shaili par aadharit ek matra palace
