Top Tourist Places to Visit in Bikaner, Rajasthan

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.

Historical places to visit in Bikaner:

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 of the portion of the palace remains inaccessible to the general public because it has been turned into a luxury hotel, the museum, accessible portion of the palace and its huge garden 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.

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.

Shopping in Bikaner:

If you are a shopaholic, 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 of Bikaner should definitely be on your Rajasthan itinerary when visiting Rajasthan; after all, it is one of the most historical cities of the princely state.

    • Trip to Char Dham

      Let me give response location/stay wise. 1. Hotel Drive in: Hotel was good but behavior of staff was not good. Even they arguing with us for food. Also at the end of tour, they have given room with window having broken glass. I have photo of that as well. 2. Hotel Amandeep Galaxy: Hotel is not up to the mark but staff behavior was too good. 3. Hotel R. K. Heritage: Hotel as well as staff behavior was very good. 4. Hotel Chanderlok: Hotel as well as staff behavior not good. You can't put the same in the list of hotel. One can peep into the bathroom from outside. Window was open. It is very very bad. It comes to your reputation. Pathetic. 5. Bikaner House: Hotel as well as staff behavior was very good. Also location was very good, beside the temple. 6. Hotel Ganga: Hotel as well as staff behavior was very good. Food was also very good. Further, i appreciate the last moment help from Heaven Uttarakhand for changing hotel. I would request Heaven Uttarakhand to re-validate the route plan because many places they considered 6-8 hrs driving time but we spent more than 14-15 hrs in travelling. One can understand the situation after travelling this much of time in a day. Also I would request Heaven Uttarakhand to ensure proper driver who very well know about places to visit. Many places we went with the help of Google Map. This should not happen. I thought to give you genuine feedback so that improvement can be done. Regret if I have hurt someone. Regards,

      Amazingly Perfect Honeymoon Trip to Dubai. We had booked Dubai honeymoon trip. I was not aware al all regarding good location in Dubai. Ankit helped me to book hotel in very good location. We got a Bikaner restaurant just behind my hotel. I got a call from Dubai in India itself. Easy to allocate the person at the airport. Very good guide with cars. No glitches at all while I was on the trip. I would definitely refereed you guys to my all family & friends groups. Thanks Epicurean Holidays for the great Trip. Everything

    • Trip to Bikaner

      9 days trip to Rajasthan -> udaipur, jodhpur, jaisalmer, bikaner, pushkar, Ajmer and Jaipur. We were told that the driver will be familiar with all places to visit but unfortunately he had no idea about any city other than udaipur. Additionally, he did not even have a map. He was dependent on the guest to help him with directions on mobile. Because of this we wanted a lot of time figuring things out which could have otherwise been utilized for site seeing. Neither the agent nor the driver informed us about timings of important places that close as early as 4.30pm. Evenings wasted! Overall experience is that I ended up planning activities of the day instead of relaxing n enjoying the trip.

    • Trip to Bikaner

      Overall it was a good trip of Rajasthan. We went on a 6 night 7 day trip planning to cover Jaipur -> Bikaner -> Jaisalmer -> Jodhpur -> Pushkar -> Jaipur. We were two adults and one Kid (10 yrs). Mr Kapil Sharma booked the Hotels and cab(Etios) as per our requirement. The quotation was very competitive and I confirmed the booking after comparing the prices with a few others. Out of the planned trip we could not cover Pushkar due to lack of time. Mr Sharma was in contact with us throughput the trip about the facilities. The driver Sohan Singh (Sonu) although very young, was a punctual, respectful and a very safe driver. Probably being his first time around these parts, he did not have much knowledge about the sights and monuments. But, we didn't mind considering his age and experience in this industry(Thanks to google !). At a couple of places we left our Son in the car with him and they bonded well. MehranGarh Fort (Jodhpur), Amer Fort (Jaipur), Manbha Camp (Khuri Sand Dunes, Jaisalmer), War memorial(Jaisalmer) were among the most memorable places we visited. The Night Safari on a Jeep in the Sand dunes was a unique experience. The Albert Hall Museum in Jaipur contains excellent artifacts. Worth a visit. There is a lot of travelling involved. Carry your favourite song collection for the long car rides. There are not many decent hotels en-route, especially with good toilet facilities for women. Carry some eatables, if you are travelling with Kids. The Tour may not proceed as per Itinerary (I was stuck in a 3 hr traffic Jam due to a Road Show by a prominent political personality) . So be flexible with the timings. Wherever possible, take an official guide. They explain the local history behind the monuments and keep you moving. On your own, you might spend too much time at one place, missing others. Don't get pressurized into buying things at the monuments by the guides. We did all our shopping at Jaipur (Market near Hawa Mahal) on the last day of the visit so that we didn't have to carry the stuff during our trip. The prices were cheaper than at the shops near the monuments. Carry Re-usable water bottles and have it filled up at the Hotel Restaurant during breakfast. Save money as well as the environment. Almost every hotel arranged a cultural event in the evening where local artists performed. Please do tip them generously. Some Hotels have limited electrical outlets. Do carry a multi-point electrical socket for all your phone and camera chargers.

    • Trip to Bikaner

      It is my last minute planning to travel to Rajastan with family (Wife, One kid and Mother). Tourpedia made my trip memorable. It is great service offered by them from landing to the airport and returning back to Jaipur. I had habit of booking my own hotels and plan the local conveyance within city or inter-city. I had actually taken right decision to move to tourpedia package for Rajastan trip. It made my life easy. It would have been in very very difficult for me travel jaipur to Bikaner to Jaisalmer to Sand dunes desert to Jodhpur and Jaipur. I would have spent more money on this trip if i had not booked tour pedia package. Over tour-pedia has provided quality services. One of the 5 hotels was not good. Particular hotel took lot of time for serving the break fast. Apart from it service is very good. Driver was very old, polite and experienced. Some times driver was getting irritated easily. I have just ignored it he is like old person and common behavior. I treated him like my family member. So there is no problem. I suggest everyone who wants to go on trip to Rajastan must consider tourpedia.

    • Trip to Bikaner

      great trip. covering pushkar, ajmer, bikaner, jaisalmer, jodhpur, udaipur . Hotels at pushkar, jodhpur and udaipur were really pleasant. Specially Pushkar hotel had great food and very very comforting stay. Udaipur hotel was at lake pichola with wonderful view but a little inconvenient to travel during market hours. But all trouble was forgotten once you visit the room with it's magnificent view. Jodhpur hotel was a Treebo property so it is self explanatory in terms of comfort and food. Properties at bikaner and jaisalmer were hyped and didn't enjoy any facilities provided. There was really less comfort at both the locations. Food was not good at Bikaner. If one already has dhani experience then i would recommend to stay at Jaislamer city rather than going for Swiss Tent. One can always travel to Desert to enjoy safari and camel ride. our bedsheet was torn & bedding was not fresh. insufficient towels. food was cooked in a bad oil. We had Etios sedan for ourselves throughout the journey. Cab was really comfortable. Driver was decent. but it was annoying at times when he was continuously on phone for hours in a very loud voice with his fellow driver and family calls. Saurabh, main agent, is very proactive and patient with all the queries. Also he handled my en route issues really well whenever I had any.

    • Trip to Bikaner

      The driver Mukesh Sharma was very prompt and punctual.He took us to all the places requested and provided us helpful insights. The hotels provided were average except for the one in Udaipur and somehow the worst rooms in the hotel were provided to us (eg.room toilet not working in Jaisalmer hotel and we had to be transferred to a smaller room, the hotel room in Bikaner was ground floor near lobby..so there was disturbance round the clock,Hotel in Jodhpur didn't have staff to provide breakfast). Need to reconsider if you are booking almost 2 months ahead and still provided with such hotels for the money we paid. Overall a good trip itinerary if the hotels are not considered.

    • Trip to Bikaner

      IT WAS 8 DAYS TRIP STARTING FROM DELHI COVERING JAIPUR JODHAPUR JAISALMER AND BIKANER. OVERALL TRIP WAS GOOD. SARANG PALACE AT JAIPUR IS CLEAN NEAT BUDGET HOTEL. BREAKFAST SERVED AND SERVICE WAS VERY GOOD. BUT THEY CHARGED RS 100/- PER DAY TO PROVIDE FACILITIES TO DRIVER WHICH NORMALLY NOBODY CHARGES. TRIP SAILOR.COM SHOULD NOTE THIS. KUTCHMAN HAVELI AT JODHAPUR IS VERY CLEAN NEAT AND SERVICE IS ALSO VERY GOOD. IT IS CENTRALLY LOCATED VERY NEAR TO MARKET. WE CAN GO ON OUR OWN TO MARKET WITHOUT DRIVER. IT IS NICE TO TO HAVE HAVELI/PALACE EXPERIENCE INSTEAD OF USUAL 3 STAR HOTEL EXPERIENCE. BREAK FAST SERVED IS OK NOT SO GOOD. DESERT GATEWAY RESORT AT JAISALMER IS VERY GOOD .EVERYTHING IS VERY GOOD. HOTEL AT BIKANER IS ALSO GOOD. TRIP SAILOR.COM SHOULD SELECT PROPER TAXI PROVIDER. DRIVER ALWAYS HAD SHORTAGE OF MONEY TO FILL THE DIESEL AND OWNER NEVER USED TO SEND IN TIME. TWO TIMES WE PAID FOR DIESEL. OF COURSE THEY RETURNED IT. THERE USED TO BE ALWAYS ARGUMENT BETWEEN DRIVER AND TAXI OWNER WHILE DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY. PREETI AGGARWAL OF TRIP SAILOR.COM ALWAYS AVAIABLE ON THE PHONE AND SORTED OUT THIS ISSUE. I SINCERELY THANK HER. IF I HAVE TO RECOMMEND TRIP SAILOR.COM TO MY FRIENDS AND RELATIVES THEY HAVE TO TAKE CARE WHILE SELECTING TAXI PROVIDER.

      It was great trip. Travel triangle Provided us the honest and truthful driver for 10 days long trip, so we had fearless trip in unknown destiny. Except one hotel at Bikaner Raj vilas rest of all the hotels and services great. Especially the palace hotel in Jaisalmer was mind blowing. It was great in Udaipur - people in gold leaf, their services and caring is appreciated. Same is in Jaipur whisper palm. Experience in Desert camp at Jaisalmer was awesome. It would be even more great if two of the hotels given within city so we could have had an opportunity to explore more to the city local people. Also it's better to be within city in case of health related emergencies. It was a wonderful trip.

    FAQ's of Bikaner

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Rock climbing in Bikaner is safe only when you are with registered and expert guides who are trained enough to take tourists with them. Make sure that you choose the right guides.

     

     

    Yes, ATMs are spread all over the city and finding them is easy.

     

    In terms of clothes, if you are visiting in summer, light cottons and such are recommended. In winter, warm clothes are a good idea as it tends to get quite cold. Shoes are a necessity as there is a lot of walking to be done and similarly, sunscreen is a perennial necessity. A camera, with a cover to protect it from the desert sands,  is always a good idea to have around as there are many instantly snappable areas.

    While WiFi is available at almost all central parts of the city, connectivity is sketchy at best when in the desert area. Plan accordingly.

    The Camel Safari of Bikaner is a must do. Also try to attend the Camel Festival at the Junagarh Fort .
