Photograph from the Curzon Collection, of the Suraj Bhavan at Dig, Rajasthan, taken by the studio of Priyalall & Company in c.1900. The Suraj Bhavan is one of a group of beautiful pavilions in the 18th-century garden palace of the Jats of Bharatpur at Dig, built by Suraj Mal (ruled 1733-63). The pavilions are arranged around a formal garden with a myriad of fountains in the Persian-Mughal tradition of the char bagh, flanked by two large reservoirs or tanks. The Suraj Bhavan (c.1760) is a single-storey pavilion faced in marble at the south-western corner of the garden. This view from the garden overlooking fountains in the foreground shows the southern fa├žade, consisting of an arcade of cusped arches beneath deep projecting double eaves or chajjas supported by brackets.
