Bikaner Tour

Junagarh Fort: The Junagarh Fort, built by Rai Singh between 1588 and 1593, has a 986-metre-long wall with 37 bastions, a moat and two entrances. Situated at a height of above seven hundred feet above sea level, it towers over the city and can be seen from a distance. The fort and its palaces are profusely decorated with magnificent stone carvings. The major buildings within the fort include the Anup Mahal, Diwan-e-Khas, Hawa Mahal, Badal Mahal, Chandra Mahal, Phool Mahal, Rang Mahal, Dungar Mahal, and Ganga Mahal. The Chandra Mahal has remarkable frescoes. Beautiful mirror work adorns the walls of Phool Mahal while golden pen work decorates the Anup Mahal.

 
Karni Bhawan: Karni Bhawan, home to the erstwhile Jagirdars of Sodawas, Bhati Rajputs of the Lunar dynasty, was named after Dr. Karni Singh -- the then maharaja of Bikaner. Dr. Karni Singh came from a family of hunters, though his interest was more into clay-pigeon shooting. The maharaja gained his expertise in this field and eventually represented his country in the Olympic Games. 
 
A part of Karni Bhawan has been converted into a hotel. Only six rooms are used to accommodate the overflow of tourists from Lal Garh palace, and it has all the modern comforts. 
 
Lalgarh Palace: Built in the memory of maharaja Lal Singh, Lalgarh Palace has a graceful facade of red sandstone, and is one of Maharaja Ganga Singh’s great achievements. The maharaja ruled for a period of 56 years. The state especially prospered under his rule. 
 
In the fort museum which is housed in the red sandstone Ganga Niwas, built during the reign of Maharaja Sir Ganga Singh, here can be seen a unique collection of miniature paintings, manuscripts, weaponry and even a world war I bi-plane. 
 
The Lalgarh palace has now been converted into a beautiful hotel. The large and airy rooms point towards a pervasive British influence, even though the Welcome group took over it''s management in 1993 and made numerous renovations. 
 
The shri Sadul museum forms a part of the palace, and houses vast collections of books, photographs, manuscripts and albums that span several generations.

 Bharatpur is today known as the country's finest bird sanctuary, but before independence its fame was more generic. Bharatpur was the premier Jat state in Rajasthan, Dholpur being the other one. In a sense Bharatpur is the legacy of Churaman, a Jat overlord whose forces were a source of constant irritation to the Mughals in the late 17th century. The Mughals retaliated by destroying Jat villages. The Jats later regrouped under Badan singh who firmly entrenched himself in a belt along the river Jamuna between Delhi and Agra.

 
Also known as the eastern gateway to the culturally rich state of Rajasthan, Bharatpur is renowed for it''s World Heritage-listed bird sanctuary; the Keoladeo Ghana National Park (5 kms to the south of the city centre). The sanctuary is home to several rare, local as well as migratory birds including the Siberian cranes. In the 17 th and 18 th centuries, the town was an important Jat strong hold. The Bharatpur Palace is another major attraction for the tourists visiting here. It houses several ancient exhibits dating back to the 15th century. The Lohargarh or ''Iron Fort'', is also worth a visit.
