“"Massive, Spacious, Peaceful, Alone"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

After a bumpy ride we arrive at a small, busy, dusty town. Deeg is off the tourist trail, so everyone stares at me and I smile and everyone smiles back. One little girl really stares and stares and seems enchanted by my presence.

I climb the massive walls of the old ruined fort. A group of cheerful schoolboys accompanies me to the top. The view is excellent. Ahead is the palace and the large square pools where dozens of women are beating their clothes into spotless submission.

I tour Suraj Mahl's Palace: spacious gardens, pavilions and the palace of Rajput and Mughal architectural styles. I am alone. It's quiet. Peaceful. Beautiful.

The palace is best known for the hundreds of fountains that are turned on for special festivals. The water is colored with paint. Deeg is on my "To Return List."

“An architecture's Dream site”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

Deeg Palace is a must to see if you are planning to visit to Bharatpur or Agra. The monument is famous for its architecture and soothing summer designs.The upkeep of the palace and garden could have been better. Mr Saini is a local guide who has very good knowledge of the history and very good natured too. He is very honest and he explained every thing about the palace so skillfully even better than the highly priced guides at Agra/Delhi well known monuments. Look for mr Saini if you are visiting the Deeg Palace.

“Deeg Palace”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2012

We went with our own guide, paid to get in and then had to pay the palace's guide when we entered the palace. It was very interesting, and the grounds outside had at some point been very grand, but now none of the water fountains were working and the stench from the lake was unbearable.
