One of the most well-preserved and superbly proportioned palace complex, the Deeg water Palace is a must-visit on every tourist's itinerary.

Raja Surajmal commissioned the Deeg Water Palace to ward off the heat during the treacherous summer months. As a result, the quadrangle-shaped palace is surrounded by numerous fountains, gardens, shrubs, trees and two large water tanks called Gopal Sagar and Rup Sagar which help to lower the temperature.

One of the most intriguing buildings in the palace complex is Keshav Bhawan, the monsoon pavilion. A single-storied baradari placed on an octagonal base, it stands right next to the Rup Sagar tank. The structure has five arches along each side with an arcade running around the pavilion's interior over a canal with hundreds of fountains. The canal's walls are pierced with hundreds of minute jets that spew coloured water.

The water spray from the fountains and the jets creates a monsoon-like ambience which is enhanced further by a unique technique that produces thunder-like sound all around the pavilion. Hundreds of metal balls placed strategically on the channel surrounding the roof are set rolling with the water pressure which results in a thunderous effect.

This entire complex, sprawling with palaces and gardens, is truly a marvel of engineering skill.
