The royal walled medieval city dating back to 1486 AD lies on the northern point of the triangle of desert cities. It was established by Prince Bika Rathore and came to be called Bikaner after him. Bika was the eldest son of the founder of the Jodhpur State - Rao Jodha. Bikaner was well protected from its enemies by the harsh deserts. Bikaner was also a major trade center as it stood on the ancient caravan route, which linked Central Asia and North India with Gujarat seaports. It was thereafter a great center of trade in the ancient world.

Bikaner stands on a slightly raised ground and is circumscribed by a seven km long embattled wall with five gates. The magnificent forts and palaces, created with delicacy in reddish-pink sandstone, bear testimony to its rich historical and architectural legacy. Undulating lanes, colorful bazaars and bright and cheerful folks make Bikaner and interesting place.

Anup Mahal, Ganga Niwas Durbar Hall, Har Mandir, Sheesh Mahal, Karan Mahal, Pool Mahal and Chandra Mahal are some of the areas worth seeing. The museum in the fort houses valuable collection of miniature paintings dating back to several centuries.
