Purify Guide
1 August 2016 to 31 May 2017
Escape to a secret garden estate in India’s rugged Aravalli Hills and reconnect
within the rose-pink, Mughal-inspired sanctuary that is Amanbagh. Drawing
on India’s remarkable wellness heritage, Amanbagh’s 4- to 21-night Ayurvedic
Immersions offer a unique experience of this 5,000-year-old system of
preventative medicine. An in-house Ayurvedic physician oversees every detail of
your Immersion, whether you seek an educational introduction to Ayurveda and its
principles of self-healing and preventative care, or a full three-week programme
designed for total rejuvenation and transformation.
Ayurveda at Amanbagh
Combining the Sanskrit word for ‘life’ with veda meaning ‘science’, Ayurveda encourages balance in
all things. Its principles rely on the truism that each of us has a predominant constitutional dosha,
determined by our inherent characteristics and body type. An in-depth assessment determines
whether you are Vata, Kapha, or Pitta, and this knowledge along with regular consultations with
our Ayurvedic physician ensures your Immersion is uniquely geared to your needs. Immersions
include daily Ayurvedic treatments, delicious meals and refreshments in line with your dosha
requirements, expert yoga/meditation classes, and optional group activities. A number of carefully
curated cultural experiences are also included, such as visiting the astonishing Neelkanth Temple
and Mansarovar Lake.
THE Resort
Shaded courtyards, domed cupolas and a potent mystical atmosphere - Amanbagh is an
inspirational setting for an immersive Ayurvedic retreat. Quietly glamorous, the property
was once the resting ground for the Maharajah of Alwar’s tiger hunts. The modern-day
Mughal Palace and lush garden estate – all manicured green lawns, palms and eucalyptus
trees – is a deeply cocooning place in which to reconnect. Old World India meets New
World style, with the sleek Haveli Suites and Pool Pavilions providing privacy, space and
luxurious comfort. The spa is a haven of quiet calm, the grounds a verdant sanctuary with
sprawling kitchen gardens. The cheerful faces of Amanbagh’s deep heart, staff members
greet you with confident smiles and garlands of sunny marigolds.
Unrivalled nutritional support and education lie at the core of each Immersion: Every
meal is created with your dosha requirements in mind. Designed by Amanbagh’s
Executive Chef and his expert team under the guidance of our Ayurvedic physician and
nutritionist, your menu is utterly unique, reflecting your nutritional needs to ensure your
dosha balance restoration is in line with Ayurvedic cooking concepts. For an authentic
Panchakarma cure, a Vegetarian Ayurvedic Menu is offered which is easy to digest and
‘cure’ supportive.
Customised to your specific needs, every yoga session includes asana (postures),
mudras (gestures), pranayama (breathing techniques) and relaxation. Amanbagh offers
customised yoga sessions based on detailed consultations with our resident instructor.
Whether you are a beginner or an advanced yoga practitioner, sessions aim to increase
your mind/body connection. They also include various purification and meditation
techniques that assist in balancing the three doshas.
7 to 21 nights to reap the benefits of a toxin-free system
This Immersion is designed to eliminate the toxins accumulated in your body as a result of stress,
improper diet and unavoidable environmental factors. The results are improved immunity, the
optimum functioning of your body’s systems and a reinvigorated sense of wellbeing. Whether you

Ayurvedic nutritional plan based on your dosha requirements, as well as 18/38/56 spa sessions and

Choornaswedana: Also known as a ‘bundle’ massage,
this treatment combines a full body massage with
a warm herbal poultice. The poultice serves as an
extension of the therapist’s hands and helps unlock
areas of tension.
Udvarthana: Invigorating and exfoliating, this is a deep
massage using a paste of fragrant medicated powders
rubbed into the skin in the reverse direction of hair
growth. It not only helps to remove dead skin cells and
fatty deposits, it also improves blood circulation and
removes stagnant toxins from the body. Skin will feel
soft and refreshed.
Shiro/Mukha Abhyanga: These relaxing massages
focus on Ayurvedic Marma points on the head and face
and incorporate warm herbal oils.
JalNeti: A yogic technique using warm saline water
to cleanse and purify the nasal passage by removing
mucus and relieving facial tension.
Yoga Nidra: Yoga Nidra or ‘yogic sleep’ is an audio
journey that takes you to a state of deep inner
awareness and higher consciousness. As you let go of
your attachment to the physical world and travel inside,
you release mental anxiety and reach a state of deep

• Cow Dust Tour: Godhuli is a Hindi word that describes the late afternoon when livestock
are led home along dusty village roads. The last sunlight of the day refracts through the
dust they leave in their wake creating a beautiful mirage-like effect at this serene time of day.
Head out at sunset in one of Amanbagh’s open jeeps for a tour of the surrounding villages
and witness locals herding their goats, cows and buffalo towards home, children playing
village cricket and village elders gathered around their hookahs for an evening smoke. • Bhangarh: A medieval site of great archaeological importance, Bhangarh is situated 15
kilometres from Amanbagh. According to local villagers, the splendid ruins are haunted. • Ajabgarh: Built in 1635, Ajabgarh’s fort and temple can be visited from Amanbagh on
foot, by camel or in the resort’s open jeeps. • Neelkanth: Home to the ruins of beautifully carved temples dating back to the 6th century,
Neelkanth lies within Sariska National Park, 45 minutes from Amanbagh. Offering
magnificent views, it is situated in a high valley, encircled by mountains. • Mansarovar Lake: Situated at the foot of the dirt road leading up to Neelkanth, Mansarovar
Lake becomes a bird-watcher’s paradise from October to February. THE JOURNEY
