बड़ी देग

सेहन चिराग में बुलन्द दरवाजे के दांयी तरफ बड़ी देग है। अकबर बादशाह ने अह्द (प्रण) किया था कि चित्तोड़ गढ़ की फत्ह के बाद सीधे अजमेर शरीफ हाजिर होकर एक बड़ी देग पेश करेगा। अतः उसको फत्ह हासिज हुई और सीधे अजमेर शरीफ पहुंचकर बड़ी देग चढ़ाई। इस देग का घेरा साढ़े बारह गज है और सममें सवा सौ मन चावल पक सकता है। यह देग 976 हिजरी में पेश की गई थी।
