Best part of that travel agency was that they travelled with cook. So there was no headache about our lunch or dinner menu. We just got homely food everywhere we went. Mostly morning menu was luchi and sabji. Lunch menu was Rice, dal, sabji and Dinner menu was Roti, sabji. If any one wants to eat rice in dinner , then they will manage that to.

So after Lunch, we went for Bikaner sight scene to Bikaner Fort, the Lalgarh Palace and Karni mata mandir.
