Photograph from the Curzon Collection, of a chhatri in the fort at Dig, Rajasthan, taken by the studio of Priyalall & Company in c.1900. Dig was established as the first capital of Bharatpur State by the Sinsini Jat Badan Singh. He was proclaimed Raja of Dig in 1722 and ruled until 1733. The fort was built by his son Suraj Mal (ruled 1733-63) in 1730. The chhatri is a cenotaph, probably a memorial to Badan Singh, and takes the form of a domed pavilion that stands on an elevated square platform approached by a flight of steps.
