We loved the experience of finding an "off the beaten track" palace - and having a 'stop off' point on the journey from Mathura train station to Bharatpur (OK, it's the third point of a triangle, but made for an interesting diversion). It is such a pity, however, that more care is not taken of keeping it clean and tidy... More

The Deeg palace is unlike any other you would have seen. The architecture is very different and the scale is quite large. Do not miss if you are in the neighborhood.

Don't know why more people don't visit this beautiful palace grounds.

A palace which is also known as Jalmahal is a place about which many do not know. It is a hidden gem . The gardens are well maintained. But the water bodies on both sides are neglected. It is a palace worth seeing .

Very interesting place, few tourists, a tad dilapidated but if they ever put water in all the canals and fountains it would be a knock out place
