Amanbagh, Alwar, India
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 splendour in the finest of details.
