Deeg Fort

In the beautiful garden town of Deeg, lies the Deeg Fort built by the Raja Surajmal in the 18th century.

This majestic fort is surrounded by impressive moats and gateways. It has elegant palaces around the garden complex with fountains and enormous water bodies in the rear. The palaces within the fort include Gopal Bhavan, Suraj Bhavan, Nand Bhavan and Keshav Bhavan. These palaces form a quadrangle with a beautiful garden in the center. The garden is laid with flowerbeds and fountains.

The unique feature of the garden is that it holds about 2,000 fountains, which come to life twice every year, in February and September. The showers from the fountain give a feeling of monsoon. Most of the interiors of the fort are in a dilapidated condition, except the watchtower, which stands overlooking the city and the palace. Other attractions of the fort include a gun captured from Agra fort and obsolete cannon of Ahmad Shah Abdali.
