Junagarh Fort, Bikaner

4.5
Junagarh Fort features palaces, pavilions, and shrines erected in a mix of architectural styles, with the earliest ones dating back to about the 16th century. Enter through a gate made of yellow sandstone and flanked with two guardian elephant statues made of red stone. The fort boasts six additional gates, marble courtyards, wells, gardens, an old jail, galleries, and corridors. Successive rulers built their own sets of lavishly decorated chambers, the interiors of which stood in stark contrast to the medieval military architecture. At the onsite museum, see royal costumes, historic portraits, Sanskrit and Persian manuscripts, arms, and idols. The most notable feature of the whole complex, however, remain the intricate carvings in red and yellow stone.

  • We picked this place on our list just to visit Junagarh fort and What a beautiful fort it is! Huge, magnificent, beautiful. You can't take your eyes off. Also I liked the fact that the ticket cost (which is just Rs50/person) includes a guide as well. This fort is home to one of the only two models of the biplane used by the British during World War I. Got to know that world’s best riding camels happens to be of Bikaner and hence it is nicknamed as ‘camel country’!
  • Excellent place. Luckily we met one awesome guide there and he explained every very nicely.. and also took some excellent pictures of my family..I don't remember his name otherwise I would have shared it here.. that place is worth visiting .
  • One of the best and most visited historical places of the Rajasthan. Easy to access and guide is provided with the tickets. One hour is sufficient to visit the place. Well connected only through auto rickshaw and taxi. Very close to railway station.
  • The best thing about the fort is... Its still intact and unharmed. You will not see a bigger armory anywhere else. One of the finest architectural marvels.
  • This fort is ethereal! Locals say that it's haunted. However, it's kind of important to take a guide (suggested by the officials at the fort). Lies in the middle of the city, Bikaner. Paradise for fort lovers.
