Sunday, August 26

Warning before you read any further...

Proceed at your own risk, for...
You might drop everything you are doing right now and get that ticket to India!
I almost did!
Not the ticket since I AM in India,
but pack a bag and grab the husband of mine
For this place is perfect for romance
As also for single romanticists!
So while you are trying to get the best fare,
let me take you on an e-visual treat of
Aman Bagh, Alwar (Rajasthan)

You are greeted by old forts, rocky hills, desert vegetation and village belles

with camels thrown in for good measure

A beautiful temple for a humble prayer

Before you are transported, Raj style, to The destination

Oasis in the desert?

Enter the pillared corridor

Courtyard in sandstone and pink marble (called makrana)

Greeted by an elegant peacock

This will be your boudoir for the days to come

Wash away your stress in midst of muti-hued marble
(This one is for you, Maryam...)

Refreshed, step out into the many courtyards and gardens

Gravitate towards the pool

Ah... so inviting on a warm day!

And then dusk falls.
Amanbagh slowly takes on a new character...

Perfect for the cuppa of evening tea

Followed by a perfect dinner beneath the stars,
with your personal flute player

Various moods of Amanbagh

Amanbagh, set in a verdant oasis of palm, eucalyptus and fruit trees, pays elegant homage to the architecture and design of India’s golden age. Evoking the palatial grandeur of the Moghul era in its domed cupolas and inner courtyards, the use of makrana (pink marble) and sandstone recalls the palatial haveli mansions then favoured by nobility.
Amanbagh is a secluded and luxuriant; offering visitors the opportunity to discover and explore the fascinating remnants of an extraordinary local history, as well as the colourful culture and wildlife that flourishes today.
