Hundreds of peacocks arrive at this early hour to feed, as the sun begins to rise over the Fort.
Picnics at Desert Oases
Deep in the heartland of the desert, minutes away from the hotel, in secret enclaves between rocky escarpments, are found acres and acres of soft green pastures and lush oases, mystifying the eye and delighting the spirit. It is here that we find ourselves far from the bustle of life, in pristine settings that are almost biblical, celebrating our now legendary Suryagarh picnics.
The purity of a bona fide sunset in the desert is a remarkable experience, a force of nature. Perfect for any celebration and replete with superb vistas, we at Suryagarh will compose this evening experience to suit your particular requirements.

ACTIVITIES AT SURYAGARH
Sivananda yoga is a slow form of Hatha yoga that emphasises full, yogic breathing and relaxation. Inspired by the techniques of Swami Sivananda, the training focuses on preserving the health and wellbeing of the practitioner.
In Buddhism, chanting is the traditional means of preparing the mind for meditation especially as part of formal practice. Buddhists believe that chanting a mantra, out loud or silently to oneself, invokes powerful benevolent attention and blessings. Its repetition and sound act as a meditative chant to the reciter facilitating deep states of meditative bliss. Presentations are available on an iPod.
The experience of meditation can take us beyond mental stress and emotional agitation to a calm, centred place. Experience this bliss with our collection of guided CDs and settle into the practice, letting go of all stress, providing the mind with deep rest. Developed by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, these are graceful and effortless meditation techniques. Presentations on CDs are available at our Spa Garden.
