Lalgarh Palace, Bikaner Overview

Designed by Sir Swinton Jacob for Maharaja Ganga Singh almost-90 years ago, this is an extraordinary monument, built in red sandstone. The magnificent fort is a fascinating juxtaposition of the Oriental style and European luxury. Maharaja Ganga Singh began construction on this multi-storied, red sandstone palace in 1902. Sand dunes and rocks surround this 20th century palace.

He built it in red sandstone (hence, its name) in memory of his father, Maharaja Lal Singh. It has delicate latticework and filigree work on the balconies. The Royal family of Bikaner still resides in a part of the palace and the other half is converted into a luxurious hotel.
