Deshnok-Karni Mata Temple

There is a belief that the souls of the devotees of the Karni Mata resides in rats and hence nobody ever think of causing any harm to them. It is highly auspicious to spot a white Kaba and to be touched by them. The temple has a beautiful silver door and a wire mesh which makes it beautiful.

Gajner Wildlife Sanctuary
The lake at Gajner attracts water birds in thousands, the imperial sand grouse from Siberia. Today it’s a sanctuary for Gazelles, Antelopes, Blackbuck, although this was once a hunting ground.

8km west of Bikaner is a man-made lake by the name of Devi Kund Sagar. The cenotaphs of Devi Kund Sagar are marble and red sandstone chhatris (cenotaphs) of Bikaner kings. Maharaja Suraj Singh's Chhatri is the most impressive of all, created entirely in white marble with spectacular Rajput paintings on the ceiling.
