Junagarh Fort, Bikaner

(1,100+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Landmark
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. Put Junagarh Fort on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Bikaner trip itinerary planner.

  • The walls n design tells you about the times ,400-500 years back. Costumes photograph weapons are on display. Whatever has been preserved , is a story in itself.. There's a guide to take you for the rounds. (Punctuality was missing though!) Canteen ,toilets , a small green patch( in Rajasthan) ,drinking water, available inside.
  • this is really huge palace i loved the fact that it was built centuries ago and still in better condition also the palace is neat and clean. for ethnic people's there are many temples in and outside the fort. there is a lake in front of this fort which is beautiful there you can go on boat ride on paddle boating etc. must visit if you are interested in history of rajasthan. there is a park on side way which is biggest park of bikaner and that too it is a quiet and nicely green place. really enjoyed my visit. good luck
  • Nice historical place. After purchasing the ticket they provide a guide who gives historical information about the palace during the tour. The entire tour might take close to an hour. The inheritors are beautiful. There is a section which displays weapons of that era. There is ample parking space.
  • Cool place to kill some time in Bikaner. As far as the forts and museums go, you surely won't be disappointed
  • It's historical places n amazing place. Get good response by guiders
