Bikaner is located in the Rajasthan state in northwest India. This city is where the headquarters of Bikaner District and Division are located. The city was founded in 1486 by Rao Bika, and has a population of about 645,000 people.
The Junagarh Fort is the most significant sight in the city. It dates back to the 1500's and serves as a fort for the Bikaner royal family. The fort was built by the sixth ruler of Bikaner, Raja Rai Singh. Within the fort is a museum that houses historical weapons, cars, and other artifacts.

Another fort that belongs to the royal family (the Rajputana family) is the Lalgarh. Here you can discover the story of the royal family and see some historic artifacts of the past kings that have lived there. For information about the government in Bikaner, the Ganga Museum is that place you'll want to see.

If you are an animal lover, be sure to check out the Bikaner Camel Research Center. You can learn about camels, view the camels, and then head to the museum. You can also try camel's milk and ice cream while at the center.

There are a few temples in the city worth seeing. The Shivbari Temple is centuries old and has two large water reservoirs (called "Baoris"). Another temple that many tourists visit is the Jain Temple Bhandasar.

The Laxmi Niwas Palace was once the residence of the King of the former Bikaner state. The palace was completed in 1926 and was constructed in an Indo-Saracenic style. Today it serves as a luxury hotel. Lastly, Devi Kund Sagar is a royal crematorium that holds many tombs (chattris) that are something worth seeing. This place is located about ten minutes from the Junagarh Fort.
About thirty kilometers from Bikaner is the Karni Mata Temple in Deshnoke. Karni Mata is a local deity who was believed to be the caretaker of the Rajputana family. An interesting fact about this temple, which may impact your decision on visiting this temple or not, is that rats are believed to be holy by the locals who live near the temple. You will witness rats being cared for and fed, and you may have a close encounter yourself!
