FROM THE FORGOTTEN LANDS
A weekend getaway to the heart of Bikaner, the less famous city of Rajasthan.
TASHIKA TYAGI

Say Rajasthan and the first thing that comes to your mind are the beautiful sand dunes, camel rides, delicious food and huge forts. While Udaipur, Jaipur, Jaislamer and even Jodhpur needs no introduction to the world for their beauty, it is a smaller city like Bikaner that needs attention, if you want to explore the untouched charm of the rich heritage that Rajasthan is famous for.

So while the sun wasn’t too harsh and the evenings were pleasant in Northern Indian, we decided to head to this historic city that is mostly known around the country for its delicious sweets and bhujia.

Soak in the vibes

For our three day trip to Bikaner, we stayed in Gaj Kesri Hotel. Spread across 25 acres of land, the hotel is set amidst lots of greenery on the JodhpurJaipur Bypass, keeping you away from the usual hustle-bustle of the city. The property is owned by the Rampuria family of Bikaner and has been designed by the owner, Sunil Rampuria, who is actually an architect and an art connoisseur.
