Introduction of Bikaner

Bikaner, Jaisalmer and Jodhpur forms the desert triangle in the state of Rajasthan. Bikaner was founded in the year 1488 by Rao bika, a descendant of Jodha, the founder of Jodhpur. It lies in the north of Rajasthan at an altitude of 237 mts above sea level. It covers an area of 38.10 square km. Earlier, it was a major trade centre as it lies on the ancient caravan route which linked central Asia and North India with the Gujarat seaports. While other cities of Rajasthan are rich in lakes and havellis, Bikaner seems quite bare in that respect. Bikaner is famous for its superb fort, camel safaris and Karni Mata temple. In this temple thousands of holy rats are worshipped.

Hindi, Rajasthani, Marwari and English are the common languages which are spoken here.

The climate in Bikaner is temperate. In Summers the temperature is not too hot. It is around 41.8 Celsius and in winters it is around 5 Celsius.
