Bikaner Travel

Bikaner Travel PackagesBikaner replete with scores of sand dunes has its history in later half of 15th Century. The kingdom was founded out of the barren wilderness of only 84 villages by a Rathore prince, Rao Bikaji. He was the most adventurous of the five sons of Rao Jodhaji the founder of Jodhpur. With a ragtag band of only 300 men in tow, he annexed the territories of the Godara Jats in 1486. Subsequently, his rule encompassed 3000 villages. It was centre to the ancient trading routes. Shrewd military and political manoeuvrings helped raise the revenue by levying on passing caravans on the silk route.

Later, in 1587, Rao Rai Singh started building the Junagarh Fort, which is a rich historical and architectural legacy in reddish-pink sandstone. The fort was often attacked but never conquered. It held within its ramparts 37 palaces, pavilions and temples. The decoration of the apartments within by successive kings has the influence of Mughal style. The dexterous creation of profusion and illusion is reflected in Anup Mahal and Badal Mahal. The other treats to the eye are Har Mandir and Gaj Mandir.

The eminence of Maharaja Ganga Singh (1887-1943) started reflecting in the modernisation of the city without disburbing the basic fibre. Even today the city’s lifestyle is embedded with the same medieval grandeur. The modern day cars/vehicles are no threat to Camel - the ship of the desert; they juxtapose smoothly in every day life. Camel speeds past in smile as sport and transport while the other vehicles are having hiccups climbing sand dunes. Bikaner has the world’s largest Camel research and breeding farm.
