City Places of Bikaner

Bikaner was once submerged into the wastelands of western Rajasthan, before being founded by Rathore king Rao Bikaji, who established his kingdom here in 1488. Since then this place has developed and found its place not just in the pages of History but also among the most important desert cities of Rajasthan. During the medieval era, Bikaner also remained an important cultural as well as trade centre of the state.

Apart from the Bikaner Desert Safaris, other magnetic Attractions to watch out here are Bikaner Forts, Palaces, Temples and its traditional bazaars. During your Visit Bikaner, get enthralled by the folk performances and fire dances, as colorful costume-adorned dancers swirl and tap their feet to the songs in rustic voices and beats of traditional instruments.

Delhi

History of Bikaner:
About Bikaner, Rao Bika was a descendant of Rathore king Rao Jodha, who found the Jodhpur city and took it to heights. A tiff between the father and the son, led Rao Bika to establish his own independent kingdom in a wilderness zone to the north of Jodhpur, which he named Bikaner. Being on the trade carvan route, it became an important trade centre and owing to its geographical location and topography, it managed to become an undefeated territory.

Its closeness to Delhi and Agra resulted in many battles with the Mughals, during the reigns of Aurangzeb, though it still remained unconquered. The Marathas too tried to take siege of its Fort, but in vein. In the 19th century, it traded Camels with the Britishers during the Afghan War, which brought in enough revenue to bring back the lost charm of the kingdom. Maharaja Ganga Singh, who ruled in the 19th century, was one of the most sought after rulers of Bikaner, who took it to heights by applying his intellectual capabilities. He also promoted the Ganga Canal, built in 1925, which was used to irrigate its barren lands.
