|Deeg Palace, Rajasthan en.wikipedia.org/|
Built in 1772, Deeg Palace has become a luxurious summer resort after 1972. Jat ruler Badan Singh, who ascended the throne in 1721, built it here. Deeg, Rajasthan was the original capital of the Jat rulers and they shifted the capital to Bharatpur; it is said, for security reasons. The palace is about 32 km from Bharatpur. The Muslim invaders of Delhi used to attack Deeg because of its strategic location and proximity to Agra. Prince Suraj Mal, being shrewd as he was, did not want to take any risk and decided to have a fort built in a safe place. In earnest, he began the construction of a fortress around the palace in 1730. The fort was a formidable one with massive walls and deep and wide moat all around to keep the invaders away.
