    Deeg Palace

    Deeg is located about 35 kilometres from Bharatpur ~ the manager at our hotel recommended it as a side trip.

    It has some well-preserved palace buildings and gardens, including some fantastic sections that seem to merge with the surrounding water.

    It costs about $5 to enter the complex, which seemed steep.

    Water Palace, Deeg

    Although interesting, the complex didn't really merit the lengthy bus ride (35 kilometres seems much longer on some roads than others).

    We also dealt with some of the most obnoxious behaviour I encountered in my entire trip ~ we were followed and harassed by a group of young men. ..it grew to a dozen or so at one point. The men working in the complex did nothing, even after a request. It's incredibly difficult to enjoy anything under those circumstances. . .so that may have coloured my impressions of Deeg.

    Deeg with its exquisite complex of pleasure palaces lies 32 Kms north of Bharatpur. Created in the mid-eighteenth century by Raja Badan Singh with additions by Raja Surajmal, this was an idyllic refuge from the battles which the erstwhile rulers constantly waged. Once the summer resort of the rulers of Bharatpur, it served as the second capital of the region. This interesting town has massive fortifications amidst beautiful gardens.
