Bikaner

Bikaner Historical Movement

The handicraft industry of Bikaner has emerged as the lifeline of the state. Particularly the Ivory and Lacquer ware goods made in Bikaner are exquisite and are famous all over the world. The city is also famous for various red and yellow building sandstones. These sandstones offer great charm to a building and are taken to various parts of the country to decorate a building in a natural hue. A fortified look of a medieval charm appears from every street of the city due to extensive use of these sandstones in constructing the buildings and paving the streets. Bikaner is well-known for the intricately carved Jharokas. These were specially created in the palaces to facilitate the royal womenfolk to view the proceedings outside on the streets.

The city of Bikaner is said to be built by Rajput Rao Bikaji. He started building Bikaner in 1465 which was completed in 1488 AD. The entire city is surrounded by a wall and there are five gates or entry points to enter in the city. Bikaner can be actually called as a desert city being positioned amidst a desert. Jodhpur is at a distance of 248 km from Bikaner and is another tourist attraction.Almost all major cities in the northern and western parts of the country are well connected with Bikaner through rail and road network.
