You can visit the different royal apartments

The fort in Bikaner is in the city center next to the public park. It was built between 1589 and 1594 by Raja Rai Singh, a general in the army of the Mughal emperor Akbar. Inside you can visit the different royal apartments. Its main feature is that it is one of the few fortresses of Rajastan that isn't high on a hill. There is even a room decorated with stripes, which is thought to help precipitation, as this city is extremely dry and lacks rain. It is open from 10:00 to 17:00.

The Junagarh Fort is located in the city of Bikaner, in the region of Rajasthan. It is an impressive fort, which was formerly called Chintamani, and gave the name of Junagarh, which means old fort at the beginning of last century, when the family owns the palace and governor of the region came to live elsewhere. It is one of the few forts in Rajasthan which is not on a hill, so you get to walk and not elephant, not as exotic, but what is there to inside is gorgeous. The fort was built by the Prime Minister of Raja Rai Singhji, the ruler of Bikaner, who ruled between 1571 and 1611. The walls and the walls were made later. Most impressive once you step inside, interior decorations are fresh, stones embedded in the walls, it teaches the family wealth, there are portals covered with gold, is gorgeous. There is also a small museum that tells the story of the city of Bikaner, and the dynasty of the Singhji.

El fuerte de Junagarh se encuentra en la ciudad de Bikaner, en la región de Rajasthan. Es un impresionante fuerte, que antes se llamaba Chintamani, y le dieron el nombre de Junagarh, que significa viejo fuerte a principios del siglo pasado, cuando la familia dueña del palacio y gobernadora de la región se pasó a vivir a otro lugar. Es uno de las pocas fortificaciones de Rajasthan que no esté encima de una colina, por lo cual llegas a pie y no con elefante, no es tan exótico, pero lo que hay a dentro es precioso.

El fuerte fue construido por el primer ministro de Raja Rai Singhji, el gobernador de Bikaner, que gobernó entre 1571 y 1611. Las paredes y las murallas se realizaron más tarde.

Lo más impresionantes una vez entras, son las decoraciones interiores, frescos, piedras incrustadas en las paredes, se enseña la riqueza de la familia, hay portales cubiertos con oro, es precioso. También hay un pequeño museo que te cuenta la historia de la ciudad de Bikaner, y de la dinastía de los Singhji.

The Junagarh Fort is located in the city of Bikaner, in the region of Rajasthan. This is a very impressive, which before was called Chintamani. The name means old Junagarh fort. He received when at last century the family of Governors of the region changed residence, leaving a vacuum. This is one of the few highlights of the region that is not built on a hill, but in the plain. It so happens to walk and not an elephant, but the interior is no less impressive. The fort was built by the Prime Minister of Raja Rai Singhji, the ruler of the city of Bikaner, who ruled between 1571 and 1611. The walls and the walls are made later. The more impressive when you enter the fort are the interior decorations, frescoes, stone embedded in the walls, large family showed his power when received by the finesse of its decorations. There are doors covered with gold, it is superb. There is also a small museum that tells the story of Bikaner and Dynasty Singhji.

Le fort de Junagarh se trouve dans la ville de Bikaner, dans la région du Rajasthan. C´est un fort impressionnant, qui avant s´appelait Chintamani. Le nom de Junagarh signifie le vieux fort. Il le reçut lorsqu´au siècle dernier la famille des gouverneurs de la région changea de résidence principale, le laissant vide. C´est l´un des rares forts de la région qui ne soit pas construit sur une colline, mais dans la plaine. On y arrive donc à pied et non à dos d´éléphant, mais l´intérieur n´en est pas moins impressionnant.

Le fort a été construit par le premier ministre de Raja Rai Singhji, le gouverneur de la ville de Bikaner, qui gouverna entre 1571 et 1611. Les murs et les murailles se firent plus tard.

Le plus impressionnant quand on rentre dans le fort sont les décorations intérieures, les fresques, les pierres incrustées dans les murs, en gros la famille montrait sa puissance quand elle recevait par la finesse de ses décorations. Il y a des portes couvertes d´or, c´est superbe. Il y a aussi un petit musée qui raconte l´histoire de Bikaner et de la dynastie des Singhji.
