BikanerBikaner remained lost, a sandstone jewel hidden in the desert, till its resurrection by the tourism industry soma years ago. A vast expanse of rippling sand and scorching sun, an arid, rocky scrubland. It is situated on an elevated ground, surrounded by a seven-kilometer-long embattled wall marked by five gates.

The Rathore prince Rao Bikaji, the liveliest and most enterprising son of Rao Jodhaji of Marwar, founded Bikaner in 1488 AD. The harsh desert surrounds this rich city; no doubt few could gather courage to venture into this part of the globe.

The old part of Bikaner city is surrounded by a stonewall that is 15–30 feet (5–9 m) high and has five gates. Bikaner is now a trade centre for wool, hides, building stone, salt, and grain. Bikaneri woolen shawls, blankets, carpets, and sugar candy are famous, and there are also ivory and lacquerware handicrafts. The old part of the city is overlooked by a fort and has numerous buildings of bright red and yellow sandstone.

Bikaner MuseumWithin the fort are several palaces of different periods, a museum housing Rajput miniature paintings, and a library of Sanskrit and Persian manuscripts. The fortified town still preserves the aura of medieval times, as it is protected by harsh desert and remained untouched by outside influence. The city is an exercise in architecture, one gapes in awe at the embattled wall with ornamental gates. The lofty houses with excellent carvings still survive averring to the craftsmanship and prosperity of the people.

The Town is also famous for delicacies like Rasgullas, Bhujias and Papads.It has become a big wool production center and has a unique Camel research farm. Carvings find best expression in Bikaneri havelies. Havelies are marvels in home architecture. Such havelies or residential houses do not exist anywhere in the world. They are the pride of Bikaner, says great author and philosopher, Aldous Huxley. They are situated in narrow lanes in the old city. They are marvelous mansions made of red stone and stand magnificently. They stand spreading magic around. Their jharokhas (casements), entrances, latticed windows, divankhanas, Gumaharias or basements, are exotic. The -red stone gives a look that is like a red carpet forcing one to look and admire. The oldest haveli is perhaps four hundred years old but most of them are hundred years in age or around it. That is why they indicate a pattern of their own.

Bikaner They charm each and everyone who happens to see them. Their exterior is dominated by the jharokhas at once charming and capable of keeping spellbound. The jharokhas are exquisite carvings made alive by artistic creators. They marvel in the beauty that lies in them and not merely in beholder's eyes. They are generally six feet long and three feet wide proving that small is beautiful. Smaller they are, the more beautiful they are likely to look. They form the most picturesque part of the haveli face. Leaves and flowers decorate every jharokha giving it an astonishing and pleasant natural effect. Jali or stone with small holes create unbounded beauty.

Every haveli has at least a second story. Mahal is the symbol of status. lt is rich in carvings. Golden carvings are the ardour of the mahal because it is here that dancing girls used to give performances in mahfils (parties). Some havelis have ceilings, which instantly attract the viewer, earn his appreciation, amaze him, and delight him.
