An architectural marvel at Deeg Palace and Fort

Deeg Water Palace & Fort is situated 32 km from Bharatpur in Rajasthan. It was built in 1772 as a luxurious summer resort for the rulers of Bharatpur State & was in use till the early 1970s. Conceptualized byBadan Singh, his sons Suraj Mal & Rup Singh and grandson Jawahar Singh can be credited with the making of the Deeg Palace & Fort.The architecture of Deeg Jal Mahal consists mainly of bhavans such as Gopal, Suraj, Kishan, Nand, Keshav, Hardev. The striking features of these palaces are its fine proportions, spacious halls, sprawling greenery all around and many canals with fountains. In fact the design of the gardens has been inspired by the 'Mughal Charbagh'.The Gopal Bhavan is an architectural delight it is actually 4 storied but looks like a single storied from the front, two from inside and three from the back side one floor is under water (as part of the cooling system / technique).Another marvel is the Keshav Bhavan or the monsoon pavilion. The spray of water from the fountains and the jets create a monsoon-like ambiance 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.The 900 fountains, the major attraction of Deeg Palace, work twice a year during the amavasya festivals in February & September. Small cloth pouches with different organic colors were manually inserted into the holes in the reservoir wall. When the water flowed out through them passing along an intricate network of pipelines, the fountains begin spouting coloured water.

Very beautiful Palace

Deeg Water Palace is situated in the main centre of Deeg. It is a very beautiful Palace. Many foreigners come to see and enjoy it. There is a Ganesh Temple in front of the Palace.

Well maintained place with lawns

Old place, lawns & the palace well maintained, lots of history behind. Would be good to have refreshments stall as it gets pretty hot during the day. Public conveniences are also required.

A beautiful when water is full

Jaipur happens to be one of medieval India's first planned city. The Jat palace grounds, and buildings are beautiful but somewhat ill maintained. I dare say that when there is enough water in the pools, it will really look really beautiful.You can also see some of the historical looting by the Jat rulers from Delhi - some gateways and marbled floors which reminded me of the Quwwat-ul-Islam mosque from the Qutb minar complex. However, the guide told me that the likely loot is from the Feroze-Shah complex of Delhi. On the whole, the palace grounds a terrific place for a couple of hours.
