Peep into the rich heritage of the Rathore Rulers

The Prachina museum was built in 2000 by Siddhi Kumari (daughter of Late Maharaja Narendra Singh Ji of Bikaner). The museum showcases the rich heritage and lifestyle of the Bikaner rulers. You can see a wonderful collection of textile, manuscripts and farmans, jewellery, table ware & crockery, carpets, arms and weapons, royal costumes, portraits, handicrafts, decoratives and so on. What catches the eye is the extensive display of traditional dresses worn by women from the royal family. The dresses also highlight the karigari of the artisans kalabhut embroidery, zardozi work, Badala work etc. If you love history and intrigued to know all about the times under the rulers .. You will love the beautiful displays.
