what to see in deeg palace

The rulers were a bit inspired by the Mughal style of gardens which is very much evident here. The palace is a quandrangle with well manicured gardens and walkways. The place is considerable cool, as the two tanks on either side cool the air. The Keshav bhavan is called the monsoon pavilion as it branches into five archs, and the walls pierced with minute jets, where the feel of rains with thundererous sounds as metal balls are placed strategically on the channel of the roof, which are ste rolling by the water pressure which creates the effect.

During holi the fountains turn operational, small packets of organic colours are laces in the reservoir hall where the water passing through them changes colours. The temple of Hanuman is also inside.

The palace is well maintained, and a guide could help you more with the channels of fountains and the overhead tank. Also the small holes where the packets of colours are kept. There is a small museum which is not that exiciting. Hanuman temple entry is free. It would be spectacular to see when the colourful fountains are in action.
