Deeg is a town in Bharatpur district in the state of Rajasthan in India famous for its palaces built by jat rulers of Bharatpur. It was the capital of them.

Get in[edit]

Bus's frequently run from Alwar (Rs 36, 2 1/2 hours) and Bharatpur ( Rs 19, one hour). One can also reach Deeg by Train from Mathura (Rs. 8, one hour) or from Alwar (Rs. 17, 2 and half hour).

  • Deeg fort
  • Jal-Mahal palace (admission Rs 100)


Now a days Deeg is famous for the three-day fair held in the month of September, when the forts of Deeg are brought to liveliness. Deeg has various kinds of palaces, the most famous among them is "Sawan-Bhadon". The palace has a hollow ceiling with rolling iron spheres in it; when water is made to flow into the ceiling, these spheres collide with each other and produce a sound like raining clouds.



Do not forget to try traditional fast foods like - Kachori and Aaloo Bhalla.



Deeg is small and there are only a couple of places to stay, neither very exciting. Most visitors to Deeg stay at Bharatpur or Agra.
