Junagarh Fort, BikanerThis fort was built by Raja Rai Singhji, the sixth ruler of Bikaner, who ruled form 1571 to 1612 AD. Raja Rai Singhji could Marshal the revenues of a Kingdom increased by the conquest of half Marwar and grant of half Gujrat and made use of ample funds from Jodhpur and Western Deccan for the construction of this fort. A contemporary of Mughal Emperor Akbar and Emperor Jehangir, he held a very high rank in Junagarh Fort, Bikaner the Imperial court. As a reward for this services as military commander, he was granted fields of Gujrat and Burhanpur by the Emperor. During his tenure in imperial service he traveled far and wide which gave him vision and great ideas about art and architecture and we can see how meticulously these ideas were incorporated in the architectural styles of his building in Junagarh fort.

On entering Tripolia, on the right side, the stairs of VIKRAM VILAS (VIKRAM was the sanskrit name of Rao Bika) durbar hall can be seen which are beautifully carved out of red sand stones from Bikaner. Next comes a ramp that leads to HARMANDIR CHOWK or ZORAWAR MAHAL courtyard and an array of courtyard after courtyard with palace rooms and hall starts, displaying intricate work of art. It is the result of building activity of 16 rules who ruled Bikaner from here for 325 years. The residence of royal family was shifted to Lallgarh Palace when Laxmi Niwas was completed in 1902 A.D.
