Built in the 1730s, Deeg was the first capital of the Jat state and is known for its graceful palaces and gardens, complete with swings and ancient fountains. Indian families find this a charming location for a picnic. Check with your hotel about the condition of the fountains—sometimes they are not working and the lake is dirty. The Jal Mahal (water palace) has fountains that are run to musical accompaniment during August and September when the local fair is held.
