Bikaner
The Essential

The main attraction of this dusty town, in an isolated location amid the arid landscapes of northwest Rajasthan, is the Junagarh fortress, whose palaces are renowned for their exquisite refinement. A stroll through the old town of Bikaner is evocative of this image of Rajasthan, which is almost medieval in some respects, yet slowly swallowed by chaotic Indian-style modern development. Numerous lines of working camels are a continual presence in the town, outnumbered nowadays by an increasingly noisy mass of mopeds and cars.
