Culture of bikaner

Bikaner has a very vibrant and rich culture, whether it be arts and crafts, cuisine, dances or even festivals. The Bikaner Camel Festival and Fair which includes a flamboyant procession of decorated camels, followed by camel races, camel dances and a display of the dazzling talents of the natives in folk dance and music, is one of the main festivals celebrated here. Bikaner is famous for many mouth-watering delicacies like “Bhujia” (a crispy and flavourful snack) and traditional sweets made from pure camel milk. In arts and crafts carpet weaving, miniature painting, ornamental stone work (Meenakari) etc. are renowned all around the world. The use of attractive hues of colour and exotic creative expression in painting make them unique and must-buy souvenirs for all travellers. Another fascinating aspect is the dances of Bikaner. A community in this town called “Jasnathis” perform something called the “Fire-Dance”. As the name implies, they literally dance with fire accompanied by the thrilling beat of drums. There are quite a number of other folk dances such as ‘Ghumar', 'Saluda', 'Bhav', and 'Mataki' for women. The men perform 'Ger', 'Patta', 'Tandava” etc. in colourful attires with finesse. Bikaner music is an integral part of their culture as well and has an awe-inspiring variety of folk variations that have evolved through the ages.
