The city flourished as a prime trade centre in those times on the basis of its strategic location.

Bikaner enjoys its superb standing of being on a faintly elevated ground and bounded by a seven km long littered wall with five gates. The rich historical and architectural legacy of the city can be easily seen with the glorious forts and palaces, constructed delicately in reddish-pink sandstone. Swelling lanes, vibrant markets amid dazzling and jovial folks make the city a place to explore.
