This place was the residence of Jat Kings and they have some very fabulous things to boast off. The Lord Hanuman statue made of Jade is marvellous. The Palace is now taken under ASI and they are doing very good job to preserve the place. The Keshav Bhawan architecture is really worth putting in some time to see and applause.... More

Very poorly maintained. Filthy. A piece of history just rotting away in Deeg. Wouldn't miss anything if you skipped it.

The place is called jalmahal or a palance on water. There is a small lake around but not very clean. Though the architecture and king's furniture and other decor is really beautiful. This place is almost around 35kms from the bharatpur bird santuary. So if travelling from delhi, it can be visited on return. The caretakers cum guide present in... More

Deeg palace was the summer house of the Kings of Bharatpur. The palace is vast and maintained. Entry to Deeg palace was free due to lord Hanuman temple in the complex, but if you want to visit the Jat King Surajmal Palace then a nominal ticket of 5 INR is charged that includes a guided tour of the palace, King’s...

HUGE area! But Nothing to see. Its a clear cut example of a Nice Heritage wasted due to lack of maintenance. No Parking for the Fort/Palace. Though this place has the BIGGEST BATS i have ever seen , in hundreds. Anyways , this is massive place (Palace and Fort) , which you can feel could have been one of the... More

More beautiful than one can imagine - very well preserved, lots of history, took a guide who explained details, very interesting place. couldn't experience the 2000 fountains in their glory as they are only operational twice a year, once in Feb and once in August. confirm before you go.

The palace is a good piece of architecture...with mix of Rajputana style and Mogul....but...the property is not meant well... the fees taken, Rs 5 could be increased the the proceeds could be used by ASI for upkeep of the property...

I've seen dozens of Rajastani forts and palaces and I must say I was really charmed by this one. If you're en route by car from Delhi to Agra (either directly or via Alwar ir Bharatphur) or if heading to Jaipur from Bharatphur it's worth the detour. Clearly not on the same scale as Fatephur Sikri and as others have... More

Though a splendid palace, this place lacks basic tourist amenities. It is a comparatively lesser known monument and is located in a rural area, hence lacking tourist facilities (particularly restaurants). This large palace has remarkable architecture, a fabulous museum with rare royal collection and is remarkable for photography. It is better to travel with private transport arrangement as public buses... More
