2007-11-23 Bikaner

A quick day in Bikaner before continuing on to Jaisalmer. I checked out the Junagarh fort which as not as impressive as I thought it would be. It's advertised as the best preserved fort in India. It has some beautiful displays but not worth a detour to Bikaner. Also had a quick look at the Lalgarh, the city palace which is now a luxory hotel. I didn't feel like going inside.
