An awesome and beautiful city with vast expanse of rippling sand and scorching sun. It is situated on an elevated ground, surrounded by a seven-kilometer-long embattled wall marked by five gates. The city was founded by Rao Bika in 1488 and from its small origin it has developed into the fourth largest city in Rajasthan. Bikaner is now a trade centre for wool, hides, building stone, salt, and grain. Bikaneri woollen shawls, blankets, carpets and there are also ivory and lacquer ware handicrafts, Bikaneri Bhujia and Papad (a spicy snack made from moth dal, spices and edible oil) and its sweets, “Usta Art” (centuries old technique is characterized by miniature paintings and gold embossing) and intricately carved Jharokas are the main attractions, which have highlighted this city at world map. The real Bikaneri culture is its religious, harmonious and satisfactory inheritance which is generated from Laxminathji temple, Nagnechiji temple, Shri Karnimata temple (World famous mouse temple), Shri Kolayatji and more than 100 temples.
