Bikaner, the walled city on the Rajasthan border is famous for its forts, palaces, temples, fairs and festivals, arts and crafts, folk music and wildlife. A large number of tourists visit this impressive and captivating city to explore its beauty and timeless charm as evident in various monuments. Bikaner dating back to 1488 AD was established by the Rajput prince Rao Bika ji, a descendent of the founder of Jodhpur, Rao Jodha ji. Bika ji selected this barren land called "Jungladesh" and shaped it into an impressive city, called Bikaner. As per archeological records civilizations flourished in this region much before the Harappan period. The city wraps layers of history and interesting anecdotes within its narrow streets lines with havelis and palaces.

Karni Bhawan Palace was home to Maharaja Karni Singh, Maharaja of Bikaner, and built in the deluxe art deco style, popular in the 1940s in the US and Europe. Its Doric pillars, ornamental staircases and large windows bear testimony to the artistic brilliance of the past. While its well-preserved paintings, old photographs (of the royal houses of Bikaner and Mewar), period furniture and curios lend a distinctive ambiance that relaxes the travel-weary guests.
