Best Places To Visit In Bikaner

Imposing palaces, magnificent forts and stunning temples; Bikaner is home to rich cultural heritage. There are many places to visit in Bikaner, some of which offer tourists a tryst with nature, while the others, a chance to revisit the glory of the Royals. Among the many tourist places in Bikaner, one of the must-visit ones is the Junagadh Fort, a mammoth structure that boasts more than six palaces, many gardens, and a lavish court. Lalgarh Palace is another must-visit; famed because of its museum. Although most palaces remain inaccessible to the general public because it has been turned into a luxury hotel, the museum, some palaces and the huge gardens are worth a visit. When planning sightseeing in Bikaner, Gajner Palace, and Wildlife Sanctuary should be on the list. Perched on the side of Gajner Lake, the palace is right in the middle of a dense forest that used to be the hunting grounds of the royal family. Ideal if you are looking for some peace and quiet, surrounded by lush greenery and opulence. Spending a long, lazy afternoon at the palace café is an ideal way to catch up on some much-needed rest and relaxation. <readmore> Other Bikaner tourist places of interest include the Bhandasar Jain Temple, a marvel of red sandstone and white marble. Laxminath Temple is also worth a visit because it’s the oldest temple in the city. Including the Thar Desert among your places to visit in Bikaner is a great idea, since the city’s proximity to the Desert is one of the major attractions here. Walk the dunes or go for a camel safari, the choice is yours. There are several other places to see in Bikaner, and perhaps the most unique is the Karni Mata Temple, the abode of Goddess Karni and more than 20,000 rats. The entire temple is covered in rats that are worshiped and fed by the visitors. The rats never leave the temple, and if you see a white rat, you are said to one of the luckiest people to visit the temple. So keep your eyes peeled. Also, be careful while walking in the temple; if you trample and kill any of the holy rats you are required to buy one of solid gold and donate it to the temple to avoid bad luck. There is no dearth of things to see in Bikaner, and if it’s shopping that you are after then Kote Gate should not be given a miss. Here you can find the best bargains in the entire city, be it textiles, handicrafts, apparels, jewelry, home furnishings or kitchenware. You can also sample some of the most delicious local dishes and street food at Kote Gate, sure to make your palate cry out for more. But don’t forget to shop at the local markets, which are set up near most tourist attractions in Bikaner. The beautiful city od Bikaner should definitely be on your rajashan itinerary when visiting Rajasthan; after all, it is one of the most historical cities of the princely state.
