Royal walled city is a part of the desert tourist triangle and lies on the northern tip of
the triangle. The city was founded in 1486 A.D by the Rathore prince, Rao Bikaji, hence
the name Bikaner. Bikaji was son of Rao Jodhaji who had asked his son to establish a
kingdom of his own. The challenge was accepted and Bikaji choose the wild country
'Jangaldesh' as his territory and thus the city of Bikaner came into existence.
A seven-kilometer wall with five entrances was build to protect the city from vagaries of the desert and any external aggression. The city flourished as an important trade center between Gujrat seaports and West Asian countries. The unbroken line of descendants of Bikaji ruled Bikaner till India got Independence. Bikaner is known for good breed of riding camels, which are among the best in the world. The camel festival held every year is famous all over the globe. Bikaner has many magnificent buildings made of Reddish Pink sandstone that transcends the surrounding barren wilderness. Unlike other cities of Rajasthan, Bikaner has been able to preserve its traditional aura of the medieval era, which makes a visitor come here year after year.
