One of the good attractions in Bikaner

Gajner palace is a heritage site and has now been converted in a 5 star hotel. However, they also offer you a small visit to the palace charging 250 INR per person for a 20 to 30 minutes visit. This includes tea/coffee and biscuits in the royal cafeteria.Its a beautiful palace built beside a lake and 35 to 40 Km away from Bikaner city.The visit is worth spending 250 as you get a feel of a royal guest. Staff is very professional and helping.You may also want to go in for boating in cool breeze of the lake but its a little costly.Overall since there are very few places in/near Bikaner, this gives you a good and memorable experience. You can also plan a night or two here if your budget and visit nearby places like Junagarh For allows t, Karni Mata temple and camel farm.
