Later in afternoon, drive to Deeg Palace – a luxurious summer resort which is built in the 18th century by Raja Suraj Mal, the former king of bharatpur. The palaces form a quadrangle with a garden and walkways at its centre. Decorative flowerbeds, shrubs, trees and numerous fountains which cool the place considerably during summer. Two huge water tanks, Gopal Sagar and Rup Sagar, on either side also helped to bring down the temperature. In festivals such as Holi, colours are added to the water. Small cloth pouches with different organic colours were manually inserted into the holes in the reservoir wall. When the water flowed out through them passing along an intricate network of pipelines, the fountains begin spouting coloured water. The spray of water from the fountains and the jets create a monsoon-like ambience which is enhanced further by a unique technique that produces thunder-like sound all around the pavilion. Hundreds of metal balls placed strategically on the channel surrounding the roof are set rolling with the water pressure which results in a thunderous effect. After spending 2 to 3 hrs you will return to your hotel in the evening and enjoy the rest of the night at your leisure. Have dinner at the hotel (own expense).
