Suraj Bhavan

Suraj Bhavan is a single-storeyed palace situated inside the Deeg Fort in Deeg, a beautiful garden town located 32 km north of Bharatpur in Rajasthan. It lies to the east of the main building, Gopal Bhavan.

Suraj Bhavan was named after the Jat king, Suraj Mal who built this palace in the 18th century. The palace architecture has a strong influence of Mughal edifices.

The palace is made of marble having fine floral carvings and is ornamented with semiprecious stones. Lotus fountains carved in the floor of the main hall and water channels and cascading water falls built in the verandas gives it a cooling effect during the summers. Deeg is about 152 km south-west of Delhi. Nearest airport is at Agra (54 km).
