Rich in culture with many heritage properties, Havelis, hotels and forts. The traditional architecture takes you back in history. Less populated. Lip-smacking Rajasthani delicacies and snacks including the famous Bikaneri Bhujia.
Extreme weather conditions, especially in the summer season and frequent rainstorms with dusty air. Not so developed town and there are very few luxurious shopping centres and restaurants.
