There is nothing better than wathcing 300 camels fighting, playing or having fun wih each other under no restriction. This was my personal favorite in the whole city of Bikaner.

4. Deshmukh Temple (Rat Temple)

Deshmukh-temple
The most famous place in Bikaner.
Many know this temple as a rat temple and surely it deserve that name since there are thousands of rats running from here and there as soon as you enter in this temple.

One last advice Please Don’t Visit Lalgarh Palace and Laxmi Niwas Palace both the places are big waste of time since you can’t enter inside the palaces.
