Not easy access in the old city we went... More

We had a wonderful visit to Bhandasar. It took a bit of effort to get to the temple but it was well worth it. The temple carvings and paintings are beautiful! There's no problem with photography and they let you go to the top of the temple to take photos - excellent view of Bikaner! It's worth it to make... More

I liked the temple but didn't like the dirty floor on first floor. Photography is good inside the temple.If you are interested in photography then visit small gullies (narrow lane) for some unusual photography.

If you travel to Bikaner and have time to spare please squeeze in your visiting schedule also this beautiful Jain temple. It is located in the old part of the city and you won't meet many visitors while visiting it. It is quite impressive because of the very colorful frescoes, carvings and crafts all around it. The priests are friendly... More

This is a beautiful temple with amazing views and a unique and interesting history. Take the time to chat with the priest and climb the stairs to the very top. The painting are amazing! Spend some time just sitting and enjoying the peace and quiet too.
