Inside the walled city of Bikaner is the three storied Bhandasar Jain Temple. Although constructed started just after the mid-1400s the temple wasn’t completed until the early 1500s. Bhandasar is dedicated to the fifth tirthankar (teacher of Jain philosophy), Sumtinath. Most Jain temples are beautifully carved but not colorful. Bhandasar is simply stunning inside! Along with beautiful carvings are vibrant... More

This temple was built even before Bikaner was habitated. It was developed by Seth Bhandashah in 14th century. Wonderful place to visit. If you are in town, don't miss this.

We found out about this temple after having spoken with some locals in Bikaner who told us about it and the old city markets. We definitely recommend seeing it, especially if you're pushed to visit yet another fort (Jaipur and Jodhpur were quite sufficient for us). We loved the decorations, the priest opened it just for us, walked us through... More

You need to see the idols here and if you have kids put them to count the number of idols. Its a fun. The pandits are knowledgeable and advise you on the history and significance of... More
