Blooming in the desert is the vibrant town of Bikaner, which has evolved from an ancient barren wilderness called Jangladesh. This city displays some of the finest creations of Rajput civilization in its imposing palaces and richly sculpted temples of red and yellow sandstone. It stretches from the atmospheric walled old city in the south to the wide and more modern city streets in the north.

This city is home to India’s only camel breeding farm, the largest in Asia. As a result, it is obsessed with its camels and has a burgeoning camel-safari industry and a popular camel festival. The locals are warm and welcoming, with a culture as flavourful as the famous Bikaneri Bhujia.

Nickname: Camel country


The best known Rajasthani food is the combination of dal, bati and churma. There are also delicacies like khata, gatta ki sabzi, pakodi, mangodi, papad. rabdi, and kheechdi. Besides spicey flavours, Bikaner is distinguished by its popular sweets Rasogullas, Raj Bhog, Ghevar, and Rabri.

Males constitute 53% of the population and females 47%. Bikaner has an average literacy rate of 66%, marginally higher than the national average.
