Evening walking tour of Bikaner


| May 15, 2020

The narrow winding alleyways of Bikaner, teeming with a dense urban population, feature some of India's best street architecture. The ornamental facades with their finely carved stone jaalis (latticed screens) and jharokhas (overhanging balconies) reveal the influences of Mughal, Rajput and colonial-style architecture. An array of colourful bangles, vibrant spices, tea stalls and local vegetables are on offer. Bikaner is also known as the snack capital of India and no opportunity should be missed to try the regional savouries, which are crispy and at times spicy. Share:
