Lalgarh Palace Bikaner
Oriental fantasy and European comforts are blended together most tastefully in the Lalgarh Palace of Bikaner. Maharaja Ganga Singh built Lalgarh Palace. There are terraced lawns that have been artistically planned and are in forever bloom with Bougainvillea bushes and peacocks that charm almost everybody who witness it. The palace has now been turned partly into a heritage hotel, while the other part still serves as the royal residence. The elaborate filigree work and intricate latticework are glorious achievements of the craftsmanship. The museum of the palace boasts of some well preserved hunting trophies, royal portraits and old photographs. The palace also houses a library, which is said to be the largest collection of original and rare Sanskrit manuscripts on parchments, copper and gold or silver plaques.
