About this Item

Deeg Palace traces the journey of an architect through the fantasy water palace of Deeg which as the capital of 18th century Jat heartland. Designed by the Jats to recreate the symbol of Radha and Krishna’s romance (raas leela), it portrays a unique cultural confluence of Mughal-Rajput garden palace architecture. Enriched with explanatory photographs and three-dimensional drawings of its captivating water cascades, scintillating water features and exquisitely decorated stone architectural embellishments, the book is a tribute to its unknown artisans. It captures the spirit of Deeg by not only analyzing the marvelous stonework and architecture but also the modulations and metamorphosis of events which led to the shaping of Deeg. It sees Deeg as a part of a larger fabric beyond just its magnificent superstructure and decorations, the buildings mirroring the times they were constructed in. Intended, equally, for both the creatively informed class of people and the general reader, the book is visualized with an aesthetic and spectacular eye dedicated to Deeg’s eternal heritage, an asset for any art connoisseur.

About the Book

 

Deeg Palace traces the journey of an architect through the fantasy water palace of Deeg, Rajasthan which was the capital of 18th century Jat kingdom extending up to Delhi and Agra. Built by the jars to recreate the symbol of Radha and Krishna's romance (raas leela), it portrays a unique cultural confluence of Mughal- Rajput garden palace architecture. Enriched with explanatory photographs and three-dimensional drawings of its captivating water cascades, scintillating water features and exquisitely decorated stone architectural embellishments, the book is a tribute to its unknown artisans. It captures the spirit of Deeg by not only analysing the marvellous stonework and architecture but also the modulations and metamorphosis of events which led to the shaping of Deeg. It sees Deeg as a part of a larger fabric beyond just its magnificent superstructure and decorations, the buildings mirroring the times they were constructed in. Intended, equally, for both the creatively informed class of people and the general reader, the book is visualised with an aesthetic and spectacular eye dedicated to Deeg's eternal heritage, an asset for any art connoisseur.
