Junagarh Fort, Bikaner

(1,100+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
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.

  • Neat, clean and well maintained fort. The best part is that a guide is assigned to a group of 15 to 20 visitors and the service is complementary. Well preserved monument.  more »

  • A must visit in the heart of Bikaner! Built in 15th century, it was earlier called the Chintamani Fort! Name changed to be called Junagarh or the Old Fort once the ruling family shifted to the new location Lalgarh Palace in the early 20th century!
  • Historical Fort made by Rao Bikaji. The place showing historical culture of The Rajputana Kingdom. Tourist must visit this place & enjoy...
  • Unlike the other forts in Rajasthan, which are usually built atop a hill, the Junagarh fort is located in heart of the old city of Bikaner. The fort was first built during the reign of Rao Bika who founded the city of Bikaner in the 15th century. It was later refurbished during the British Raj and displays a remarkable Rajput architecture.
  • Just Wow! You need to visit this place to experience its beauty. The tourist guide gives you in detail narration of each and every room in the fort.
