The Gajner Palace is about 17 miles southwest of Bikaner as the crow flies. This was a hunting ground of some really rich guy, and now it is a hotel for rich tourists. The hotel also has the best source of water around making an attractive drinking hole for various animals.



1/3/2006: One night in the luxurious Gajner Palace was definitely worth it.
