The district of Bikaner is one of the western divisions of the Indian Desert State of Rajasthan. The arid climate, the sandy terrain, the ethnic regality and the history of this land makes the region one of the top tourist destinations in Rajasthan. The main place to visit in the district is of course the district capital, the Bikaner City. This historic city was founded by the Rathores of the Rajput Clans. In the medieval time this city was the oasis on the trade route to Arabia. The communication in the district is quite lucid because of the presence of the one of the oldest railway junctions in the country, the Bikaner Railway Station. The Nal Airport is a domestic civil air base and the roads linking Bikaner with other places are very much accessible.
The places to visit in Bikaner are variant and wondrous. The desert fortresses namely the Junagarh Fort and the Rao Bikaji’s Fort are quite famous. Other notable mentions are the Laxmi Niwas Palace Hotel, the Mukam Bishnoi Temple, the Karni Mata Temple and the National Research Centre on Camels. Enjoying the delicious GI tagged Bikaner Bhujia and participating in the International Camel Festival are the most popular tourist activities here.
