Major Tourist Attractions in Bikaner
Lalgarh palace

Built by Maharaja Ganga Singh and designed by Sir Swinton Jacob it is an outstanding architectural marvel of magical fusion of Rajputana, European and Mughal building styles. Stone crafted pillars, Italian colonnades, spacious lounges, regal halls and profusely carved fire places at the imposing Lalgarh Palace in Bikaner transport you back in time to an incomparably lavish royal era.

The Lalgarh Palace is divided into three parts, the Sadul Museum, heritage hotel and the section still occupied by the descendants of the Royal family. Designed by Swinton Jacob, a famed architect of those times, the Lalgarh Palace is a lavish royal home that exudes Bikaner regalia. The Sadul Museum is a repository of historic exhibits. See a World War I plane, regal weaponry, delicately designed miniature paintings, black and white pictures and more at the Lalgarh Palace museum on your tours to Bikaner tourist attractions.

 
Museums in Bikaner

Ganga Government Museum - Also known as the Ganga Golden Jubilee Museum. Initially the museum was established in a red sandstone building near the Lalgarh Palace by Maharaja Ganga Singhji to celebrate his golden jubilee reign in Bikaner. Later Maharaja Karni Singhji constructed a larger building and the Ganga Golden Jubilee Museum was shifted to it in the year 1954. 
The museum houses brilliant specimens of Harappan civilisation, the Gupta and Kushan era and sculptures of the late classical time. It also has a rich collection of terracotta pottery, carpets, paintings, armory, and coins.

Prachin Museum - Added recently to the basket of city attractions it essentially a craft museum. Inaugurated in October 2000, the Prachina Museum is an interesting cultural center that was established by an initiative taken by the daughter of Maharaja Narendra Singhji of Bikaner, Rajasthan, India. The Prachina Museum in Bikaner showcases the long lost courtly traditions and glorious royal ways of the Bikaner royalty in a very realistic manner. It shows you ethnic Bikaner in a very special way. The basic idea behind the establishment of the Prachina Museum is to create a platform for local artists to showcase their traditional crafts that have been an integral part of the splendid Bikaner culture.
