When we turned off the road from Agra to Jaipur and began the hour drive on the narrow bumpy road to Ajabgarh I had second thoughts about our visit to Amanbagh. Once we got to the compound all our concerns vanished. From the opening welcome ceremony until we drove off the staff made us feel like guests at a private country retreat. Everything about this hotel is first rate. Although the property is ten years old it is immaculately maintained. We ate all our meals outside on the covered veranda overlooking the pool and the center of the compound. The food was as good as we had in India. Several times the chef came over to discuss our meal and our stay. We visited Bhangarh which was interesting but not as impressive as Fatehpur Sikri. Our favorite activity was the cow dust hour tour. Driving through the countryside in late afternoon seeing women in colorful sarees harvesting crops with scythes and stopping in several small villages gave us our first exposure to rural India. Our stay at Amanbagh was one of the best times of our trip.
