Junagarh Fort-Bikaner-Rajasthan


Bikaner’s history dates back to 1488 AD when a Rajput prince Rao Bika ji a descendent of the founder of Jodhpur (1459 AD)., Rao Jodha Ji established his kingdom here. Bika Ji chose a barren land called “Jungladesh” and shaped it into an impressive city, called Bikaner after the founder’s name. Archeological surveys and excavations have established beyond doubt that civilization flourished here even before the Harappa period . Excavated statues, coins and carvings of stones and clay stands as testimony to this fact.To know more about Bikaner click here.
