Excursions Deeg
Deeg with its exquisite complex of pleassure palaces lies 22 miles north of Bharatpur. Created in the mid 1700 by Raja Badan Singh and later, Raja Surajmal, as an idyllic palace of refuge from the battles in which they were constantly engaged. This interesting town is strewn with massive fortifications, stunningly beautiful gardens, magnificent parades and a colourful bazaar.

Sightseeing Keoladeo Ghana National Park

Just outside Bharatpur lies this small, but amazingly rich bird sanctuary, considered to be one of the world's outstanding heronries. Perhaps no other bird sanctuary in the world offers so many different species within so small a compass, creating a uniquely rewarding bird watching experience. The park originally called Ghana meaning "dense" takes its name from the ancient temple of Keoladeo, or Lord Shiva that you will find inside it. The new ecosystem that emerged became an ideal habitat for birds of all kinds.

Government Museum

A rich collection of artefacts exquisitely carved sculptures and ancient inscriptions can be admired in the Government Museum located in the palace. All these items speak volumes about the rich heritage, art and crafts of the region.

Jawahar Burj and Fateh Burj

A few of the eight imposing towers still stand erect within the glorious ramparts of the fort. Especially two of them - Jawahar Burj and Fateh Burj are of special interest. These were built by Maharaja Suraj Mal to commemorate his victories over the Mughals and British respectively. The coronation ceremony of the Jat rulers of Bharatpur was also held at the Jawahar Burj.

Lohagarh Fort

The fort was conceived and designed by Maharaja Suraj Mal, the founder of Bharatpur. The fort has three palaces within its precincts - Kishori Mahal, Mahal Khas and Kothi Khas.
