Treat yourselves to this secretive getaway NAZAR BAGH near Jaipur.
A view of Nature FOR YOUR EYES ONLY.
The write up will be updated in a while. All Good things take time, so hold your breath as I will unveil this treasure in the midst of Rajasthan, India.
Nazarbagh is located in the pristine rural countryside of Rajasthan about 5.5 kms off the Jaipur-Ajmer Highway at Jaisinghpura.
It is strongly recommended to walk the the last mile if you wish to be soaked in the Enchanting countryside that encompasses this discretely located Palace.
The picture below reveals the unique lansdscape of the region with interesting Shrubs and biodiversity unique to the arid lands of Rajasthan.
Luxurious and plush Nazarbagh is unveiled through Trees and the bounty of Nature that surround this Palace.
A lovely Lily ( commonly and incorrectly refered to as Lotus) Pond surrounded by Flower beds ( do see the blog titled ICE DAISY at http://www.enchantedforests.wordpress.com) and Trees far in the Horizon soothe your eyes.

For me Nature leaves signs to show if an area ,home or Palace is conducive to human well being.
If Birds , bees and butterflies inhabit a region it indicates that all is in harmony with Nature. Nazarbagh gets a big approval as it is located in the lap of Nature.
See the picture below which reveals a Bird’s Nest seen from the amazing marbled Verandahs of the Palace.

The lovely Rooftops with the typical signature Chatris ( literal translation is an Umbrella) reveal two contrasting countrysides.
One is Green till as far as the Nazar ( eyes) goes and showcases Golden Fields ( do read the blog at http://www.enchantedforests.worpress.com) and Carpets of White Flowers ( Calendulas)
As you shift your Glance you will be fascinated by an arid and parched land along with an ancient River Bed which would have been the Original Landscape prior to the Introduction of Water through modern Irrigation methods.
The Flora and Fauna in both both the Green and Brown Lands would be interesting to compare and detail.
I did hear the tell tale bird calls of the Partridges ( English), Teetar ( Hindi) or Grey francolins ( Scientific Name) at Nazarbagh.
As we descend from the Rooftops adorned by Chattris and walk around the Sprawling Green Periphery of the Palace am spellbound by the Avenue of Neem ( Scientific Name Azadirachta Indica) trees.
Neem is an endemic tree native to India which works as a natural Bio filter of Air as well besides having numerous Germicide properties.
Nazarbagh Palace was a wonderful date with Nature , away from the crowds that thronged the Jaipur Literature Festival at Jaipur.
