Aman Bagh Resort, Situated in the foothills of the Aravalli Hills and built, haveli-style, using soft sandstone and pale pink marble, Amanbagh is a regal garden estate in the starkly beautiful wilds of Rajasthan. Circled by walls which enclose a verdant oasis watered by a nearby lake and tributaries of the Chambal River, Amanbagh was once the site of the Maharajah of Alwar’s hunting lodge, and his favoured garden retreat. Evoking the cultural richness, the princely pleasures, and the dramatic romance of the Moghul era, Amanbagh pays homage to India’s golden age with palatial splendor in the finest of details.
Amanbagh rests within a walled enclosure and its fertile soil, watered by a nearby lake, supports an exotic garden of statuesque palms, aged eucalyptus and fruit trees, frangipani and lawns of manicured jade green – a dramatic contrast to the surrounding rugged terrain of the Aravalli Hills. Styled after the grandiose architecture of the Moghul era, Amanbagh pays homage to Rajasthan’s golden age through its elegant, unique interpretation of a grand haveli, or nobleman’s palace. The use of local materials for the period details and lavish interiors incorporate floors of softly-hued pink marble or makrana, and domed cupolas and inner courtyards of pale smooth sandstone.
Amanbagh is a secluded and sumptuous retreat, offering visitors the opportunity to discover and explore the fascinating remnants of Rajasthan’s extraordinary history, as well as the colourful culture and wildlife that flourishes today.
