More popularly called the camel country , the city is renowned for the best riding camels in the world. Being near to Delhi, it had Lalgarh Palace Bikanerto withstand the worst of Mughal invasions during earlier times. The exotic camel safaris, its gorgeous forts and the worship of thousands of holy rats at Mata Kali temple are some of the most interesting aspects of Bikaner. The camel festival held in the month of January is also an event worth witnessing if one wants to get the actual color of the place. The magnificent forts and palaces created with delicacy in reddish-pink, sandstone, bear testimony to its historical and architectural legacy.

The history of Bikaner can be traced back to 15th century when a Rajput prince named Rao Bikaji established it around 1488 AD. It was a flourishing center of trade and commerce as it was strategically placed on the ancient caravan routes linking Asia and North India to the Gujrat seaports. Bikaner's prosperity drew attention to it from many quarters. In fact, the history of Bikaner points out that its rulers were always locked in a conflict with the powerful Mughal rulers. However they were able to win Emperor Akbar's confidence in course of time. A look into Bikaner's history further indicates that its fortunes suffered a massive setback along with the decline of Mughal power. The rulers of Bikaner later signed a treaty with the British and remained loyal to them till it was merged with the other princely states to form the state of Rajasthan, which ultimately became a part of independent India.
