Deeg Palace in Rajasthan displays the architectural idiom that evolved under the Jat rulers. The Nand Bhawan is one of the bhawans at Deeg Palace. It comprises an area of 45m by 26m that includes an airy quadrilateral hall resembling an auditorium. It is enclosed by a majestic hall with seven openings and slender walled wings on the longer and shorter sides respectively. The hall is divided into an inner and outer segment where there is a central arcade set on a rectangular model.
Each wing of the pavilion has a raised floor covered by inter communicating section. The walls of Nand Bhawan are decorated with marbles and semi precious stones. Similar ornamentation is found on the large sunken basins of marble fixed on the floor of the hall. The ceiling of the central section of the hall in Nand Bhawan is made of wood. This suggests that the makers wanted to adorn it on the lines of the ceiling of the Diwan-i-Khas
in Delhi. The roof above the ceiling had collapsed in the year 1867 but was reinstalled by using iron girders. Possibly the building needed more pillars to provide support for its flat roof.
The paintings that adorn Nand Bhawan are done in a degenerated local style with considerable Mughal influence. Possibly the Nand Bhawan also has provision for an upper storey which however, could not be built due to some unknown reason. Like other buildings of the Deeg Palace, Nand Bhawan has a tank in front on the south, deep attic and a well refined exterior.
