Amazing Fort
Feb 2021 • Solo
One of the very few forts in Rajasthan which was not built on a hill. The architecture is very beautiful and there are numerous palaces, courtyards, balconies and temples. The main attractions are Karan Mahal, Phool Mahal, Anup Mahal, Chandra Mahal, Ganga Mahal and Badal Mahal. There is also a museum displaying manuscripts, paintings, costumes, weapons, etc. Hire a guide if you want to know all the history associated with this fort and it will take a couple of hours to cover the entire fort.

History of Bikaner
Apr 2021
It is one of those Forts in Bikaner which tells the complete history of the city. It is almost a 2hr walk through the fort along with the museum. The local guide available there are really good and they will explain you each and everything, also letting you know about the 24 Kings of Bikaner. They are proficient with the language and also photography. If you are lucky enough you can find the difference between Junagadh fort vs any-other fort in Rajasthan.
The architecture and sculpture on each wall, window, roof, door are truly amazing

First & Must place to visit at Bikaner
Feb 2021 • Family
The fort is located in the Old part of the city. There is a parking inside the fort once you enter from the main gate. The parking fee is Rs.20/-. The entry ticket per person is Rs.50/-. For normal entry you are sent inside the fort in a group, for which you need to wait. A guide will cost to approx Rs.350/- & the guided tour takes approximately two hours. It's better to hire a guide since he will cover the entire history of the city & will also suggest you other places to visit in and around Bikaner. You can also buy portable audio devices for the visit too, which are well made. Inside the fort there are various rooms & courtrooms where old artefacts are exhibited. A memorable visit.

Small and nice fort
Feb 2021
This is a nice and well maintained fort. There is a lot of artwork and decorations on the walls, ceilings, doors which can be enjoyed well. This kind of decoration is not there on any other forts in Rajasthan (and it kind of remined us of the Mysore Palace though on a very small scale). But part of the reason is due to the restoration efforts of the trust in repainting the faded sections and cleaning activities which we noticed there.

You don't need a guide to explore and you can go around by yourself. There is another ticket for Prachini Museum which contains items belonging the royal family but that can be skipped unless you have lot of time.

Overall, visit if Bikaner is part of your itinerary.

Must visit
Feb 2021
This is the only fort of Rajasthan build on ground . This symbol of heritage and cultural of Bikaner is definitely not to miss . The karn mahal , phool mahal , Anoop mahal and darabar hall don’t Skip any. It’ll take at least two hours to cover it all.
Look for guide Wasim at fort gate , he’ll make your visit worth. He is enthusiastic, knowledgeable and pleasant. And his photography skills will leave you with some amazing photos of this beautiful fort .

Must see
Dec 2020
You can see the Karan Mahal, which was built with Mughal architectural influences. Then The beautiful Phool Mahal, which happens to be the oldest part of the palace complex. Again The lavishly decorated Anoop Mahal which was the private audience chamber of the King of Bikaner , lastly not to forget the grand Durbar Hall with the ceremonial 1,100-year-old sandalwood throne.

The main attraction though for many is the famous war souvenir - the DH-9DE Havilland War Plane which was given in recognition of the service rendered by the Bikaner State Forces led by Maharaja Ganga Singh Ji of Bikaner during 1st World War which gives every Indian a moment of pride.

Our guide Mr Navrattan Singh Rathore was excellent. He was so very knowledgable and passionate about telling us about the history of the fort. Fluent in English, Hindi and French. We highly recommend his services to everyone visiting the Junagarh fort in Bikaner. Mr Rathore was also very patient and obliged us with so many family photos and tips for local shopping!
