About Junagarh Fort

Called as “a paradox between medieval military architecture and striking interior decoration,” Junagarh Fort, Bikaner is a unique specimen of composite culture. The fort was built by the sixth ruler of Bikaner, Raja Rai Singhji in 1593. Junagarh fort is one of the major palaces in the history of Rajasthan and among a few major forts that isn’t built on a hilltop. The fort was constructed in the sandy plains with appropriate defensive barricades and barriers. This impressive palace built in red sandstone contains antique monuments and admirable objects of art, like symbolic hands of 'sati's,' nine attractive temples, seven historic Parole (gates), little shrines of various deities, three beautiful gardens, four deep wells, post-medieval stables, an old Jail, and armory stones. The ancient palaces, their porches, and pillars, gates, galleries and corridors are the most noticeable features of the fort that were added timely. Other major attractions are The Gaj Mandir, the suite of Maharaja Gaj Singh and his two top wives, which is an incredible masterpiece of gold paint, sandalwood, colorful murals and stained glass. Heading up to the roof of the Fort gives you an amazing view of the city, especially during the sunset.
