Bikaner, Camel Country and more

Apart from the Junagarh Fort of Bikaner has lot to offer to the tourists.

The other major attractions here are:


Devi Kund


Eight Kilometers east of Bikaner, this is the site of royal chatris of many of the Bika dynasty rulers. The royal crematorium has several exquisite cenotaphs (Chatris). 


Another attraction of the city is Lalgarh Palace.

That is for the tourist attractions of Bikaner. Apart sight seeing in the city we went around the streets of the city in the market area. You will find lot of sweet stalls or bakery's around. Bikner is famous for Bikaner Bhujia. It is a spicy snack made from moth dal, spices and edible oil. There are lot of varieties in them. We purchased quite a few varieties for the rest of the trip.

From Bikaner we traveled to Jaisalmer, the Golden City.
Distance: Bikaner ---> Jaisalmer is 333 kms

P.S: December is the month when lot of tourists land in Rajasthan. So if you really want all the arrangements to be done properly this has to be done before October end.

I particularly love the beautiful interior of the dome. Another place I may never get to visit, I'm afraid, except electronically.

On behalf of the ABC Wednesday team, thank you!
