The town of Deeg is situated at a distance of 32 km from Bharatpur. It is one of the important tourist places in Rajasthan and is known for its palaces, temples and gardens. The Deeg Palace is situated in this town and is known for its architectural beauty. The palace was built by Raja Surajmal with the objective of warding off the scorching heat of the summers.
There are several pools, fountains and plants in the Deeg Palace. There are two large water tanks called the Gopal Sagar and the Rup Sagar that help in lowering the temperatures during summers. The most interesting part of the Deeg Palace is the Keshav Bhawan. It is a single-storeyed baradari which has an octagonal base. Another interesting feature is the artificial rain and thunder atmosphere created in the palace. The water jets in the fountains create a monsoon like effect and heavy metal balls placed around the roof produce the thunderous sound.
