Also known as “Camel Country”, Bikaner produces the best riding camels in the world. The dust swirling, yet vibrant city is famous for palaces and forts built with the reddish-pink sandstone. The history of Bikaner goes back to 1486 AD when Prince Rao Bikaji turned the barren wilderness into an impressive city.
Colorful bazaars and narrow surging lanes occupied by cheerful people glow remarkably against the backdrop of imposing palace walls. Tourists love staying at the heritage hotels, which were once royal palaces, forts or havelis of the royal families.
Bikaneri Bhujiya (crispy snack) is widely appreciated and consumed in all parts of the country. Infact, Bikaner has an entire market named Bhujiya Market which is a great place to sample different bhujiya’s as well as other street delicacies such as samosas, kachoris and kulfis.
