Bikaner Historical Movement

The Industrial Development movement in Bikaner can be traced to as early as in 1962. Though industrialization process started somewhat late but in a short span of time, the city’s industrial growth is remarkable. In between 1967-70, the first industrial area was outlined and the Bikaner district association was formed. Thereafter, instead of moving to other regions for doing business, people preferred to stay at Bikaner to do business. Soon, favorable business conditions encouraged people to start industries in their home district. Not only residents of Bikaner but also people from neighboring areas started to participate in the eruption of industrial development of the city.

The city of Bikaner is said to be built by Rajput Rao Bikaji. He started building Bikaner in 1465 which was completed in 1488 AD. The entire city is surrounded by a wall and there are five gates or entry points to enter in the city. Bikaner can be actually called as a desert city being positioned amidst a desert. Jodhpur is at a distance of 248 km from Bikaner and is another tourist attraction.Almost all major cities in the northern and western parts of the country are well connected with Bikaner through rail and road network.
