No chance for being cheated unlike other forts as group of 20-30 ppl r escorted by an authorised guide who is servant of Fort trust. The service is part of the ticket. It was a good walk..worth a visit. Also considering there isn't much to do in bikaner

Mainly the Junagarh fort is well maintained and one of very few in Rajasthan without any Camera charges. The intricate work in the ceiling and on the Doors are unique.

Impressive fort with excellent example of Maharajas interior decoration. The internal paintings, mirror work and Maharajas collection of weaponry and trophies is very impressive. Fort itself is not as impressive as Amber Fort, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur or Agra Fort. Would not make the trip to Bikaner just for this Fort unless you are a castle fanatic.

Junagarh Fort is located just inside the city area of Bikaner; walking distance from railway station (Entry No. 2). Your visit will educate you with the long history and traditions of Rajasthan. They provide their own guide and visitors are sent in a Group which sometimes are very crowded. However, if you have interest in the history and architecture, the... More

I enjoyed shopping inside the Junagarh fort. In our trip to Bikaner, visit to this fort has given a glimpse of Junagarh style of cuisine and shopping opportunity. Bought printed Bandhani dress materials.

A must watch location of Bikaner situated in the city. A well maintained fort having good collection of artistic items. There is a lake just in front of this fort which adds to the beauty of this fort. Nice place to spend time along friends and family.

Junagarh Palace is right at the mid is the city. Like all Rajasthan's palaces Junagarh is again a perfect example of Rajputanas royal culture and connections with English Kingdom. The Palace shows the royal interests of the kings and the extent they went to fulfill them. The structure and the carvings are superb. The final result that we see as... More
