Bikaner holidays

The desert town of Bikaner was founded in 1488 by Rao Bika, a descendant of the founder of Jodhpur, Jodha. Like many others in Rajasthan, the old city is surrounded by a high crenellated wall and, like Jaisalmer, it was once an important staging post on the great caravan trade routes. Bikaner is home to the superb Junagarh Fort, constructed between 1588 and 1593 by Raja Rai Singh, a general in the army of the Mughal emperor Akbar, as well as a unique government camel breeding farm.
