Tour Bikaner in Rajasthan

Bikaner old town preserves the medieval atmosphere unchanged and is collected around the high walls

Bikaner, like other caravans cities in Rajasthan, was destined to see its power and prosperity progressively vanish with the development of railways and ports in the western Indian coastal area.
The old town preserves the medieval atmosphere unchanged and is collected around the high walls, rich in beautiful havelis, the palaces of merchants, temples and bazaars.

Fort Junagarh, one of the best Indian examples of architectural mediation between the military fortress and the sumptuous palace, conserves within its mighty walls dull palaces, replaced by original buildings, added or extended by rulers over the next four centuries, but all witness to the constant Patronage to arts and crafts that were generously proportioned over time by the house, which did not hesitate to call court masters from all over Hindustan, which left you so traced by numerous styles and art schools.
Despite all the fabulous wonders offered by the city, curiously over the last few decades Bikaner has been internationally renowned, mainly reflecting from another location, located about 30km and called Deshnoke. This is where the famous Temple of Topi, Karni Mata, that so much interest and mischief seems to awaken in foreign visitors.
An interesting cattle fair that takes place in Bikaner generally in Pausha, between December and January, could in itself be a great opportunity to reach this remote caravan city.
