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

This may be out of the usual tourist area but this palace is worth a visit. Built between two lakes on either side this palace also has 2000 fountains inside and outside in the gardens. The palace appears to be single story on the garden side but 4 storys on the lake side. Inside the main palace parts are furnished.... More

The buildings are beautiful but simple ... the exhibition room could do with some better upkeep and the guides are almost as knowledgeable as you would be after a brief read on internet on the place. The place could do with better upkeep. It's supposedly best during Rakhi time when the fountains are turned on.

About an hour by car from Bharatpur but well worth the journey as almost devoid of other tourists. Fascinating glimpse into the domestic life of the Maharajah - ask to see the bathroom! Beautiful and extensive gardens to wander around and picnic in.

We visited Deep Palace returning to Delhi from Bharatpur. It takes one hour from Bharatpur by car and about an hour (or less depending on how much time and interest you have) to visit, and you can continue on to Delhi. If the choice is between Fatehpur Sikri and Deeg, definitely go see Fatehpur Sikri - it is great! Architecturally... More

The place is in the middle of nowhere and very badly maintained. I went with my parents, sister and husband. The place looks shady with no tourists. As we walked into the compound, a few workers through their tea cups from the first floor almost near our feet and continued to stare at us. A few minutes later, an extremely... More

The palace was the summer residence if the king and apt place indeed. With lakes on either side and a innovative architectural approach to give relief from scroachint sun is indeed ahead of its time. We visted last weekend and was glad to have made the decision to see this place.

we had choice to see deeg palace or fattehbur sikri, our driver told us to go to Deeg, so we went. not very impressed. Other forts in rajasthan are very good, and also the lohagarh fort in bharatpur is excellent.
