This palace is about 37 KMS from Bikaner going towards Jaisalmer. This was used as a hunting palace in old days by the royal family. It has been converted into hotel now. Recommended.

It's not worth a cost of visiting the premise. If you are staying in the palace accommodation, it's a different matter altogether. Not as splendid as the price tag but the lake is a quite serene setting if that is what you are looking for.

Entry fee of 250 for an Indian citizen. Even Taj Mahal doesn't charge that. Had expectations to see this place but don't think it's worth that value so came back from the entrance.

It is calm and beautiful but can be skipped with being in the outskirts of Bikaner. There was VVIP movement when we did visit this place and hence lots of checks etc. Did not enjoy the place freely.
