Bikaner, a weekend delight!

Standard

 

Bikaner does not have a long list of places to see, so ideal for a weekend (2/3 days) trip. There are direct overnight trains from Delhi and vice versa giving you two full days. What will be on your itinerary? Here it is.

Admire old havelis with their beautiful jharokhas and doors, if photography and history of architecture of times gone by interest you. You must get up early in the morning to have a peaceful walk down the by lanes (Rampuria street being the most famous) of old Bikaner.

Unfortunately some other famous palaces too have been turned into hotels so not a typical tourist site like the Lalgarh & the Laxmi Niwas Palace.

Pick up camel products from the old Bikaner city or the camel research institute and bikaneri namkeen as gifts / souvenir.
