Bikaner- Must Visit Destinations

Gajner Wild Life Sanctuary

Gajner wild life sanctuary is situated 32kms from Bikaner on Jaisalmer road. The lush foliage of the woods here have a number of neelgais(blue bull), waterfowls, chinkara (black buck), particularly flocks of imperial sandgrouse and wild boar living here.It is considered as the prettiest place in the region, with a lake, a palace, wooded hills and gardens. The lake at Gajner attracts water birds in thousands, the imperial sand grouse from Siberia being the most important of these. Large herds of deers can be seen here grazing freely. It was developed into a shooting ground for the royalty. Hunting, as a rule, was a sport limited only to the feudal chiefs and the Maharajas. Major game was hunted only during the period of British Raj . The palace, built by Maharaja Ganga Singhji, served as resort. There was invitation to the annual sandgrouse shoot in Bikaner that no one dared miss: it simply belonged on the top of the heap in society, so designed by Maharaja Ganga Singh at this hunting lodge. Royalty, both Indian as well as international, Viceroys and other dignitaries have been entertained here. The part of palace has now been transformed into a heritage hotel.


Camel Breeding Farm


Camel constitutes a vital species of the desert ecosystem. It utilizes various adaptive mechanisms that are most suited to desert life. It can survive in hot climate with high solar radiation and sustain on coarse fodder ,salty and thorny bushes. Considering the importance of the species in development of arid and semi-arid zones, the Indian Council of Agriculture Research (ICAR) has established National Research Center on Camel (NRCC) at Jorbeer,Bikaner(8 kms).It came into existence on 5th July,1984. Bikaner is the home tract of camel breed Bikaneri that is true representative of single humped Indian camels (Camelus dromedarius). This Asia's government-managed farm is unique and largest in Asia. There are hundreds of camels here and the scenario in late afternoon is great when camels come back from grazing. You can have some thick camel milk.
The experimental results under progress have indicated that a well built adult camel weighing about 6-7 quintals could haul 18-20 quintals for 4 hrs. covering a distance of 20 km. at an average speed of 5kph without showing any signs of distress. The slender riding camel can cover up to 100 km in a day at an average speed of 15 kph. Camel milk is very rich in vitamin C and keeping quality is good. Camel hair are utilized for making animal cover clothing, rough cloth, ropes, blankets, carriage bags, belts, wallets, etc.
