Deeg a small city located once played the role of summer resort of the rulers of Bharatpur. In fact, it was the second capital of the region. This city displays an array of massive fortifications, mesmerizing gardens, crafty palaces, and a vibrant market. Deeg used to be the capital of the Jats during the 18th century. The Deeg Fortress constructed in the early 18th century is square is constructed on a raised ground. the Fort is surrounded by a wide shallow moat. The Fortress wall completes the peripheral distance of almost 7.8 Km. Permitting entry only through the 10 gateways and strengthened by 72 bastions the fort could withstand cannon strikes as its gateway bore the thuds of white elephants. The Fort plays host to a dozen massive towers which housed several cannons which could shoot targets at a large distance accurately. The Suraj Mal Haveli inside the fortress displays typical Bengali curved bamboo roof, said to be imported by a Bengali architect Vidyadhar Bhattacharya from Jaipur.
