Vihar Palace, Bikaner- Basant Vihar Palace
was built because of a "fanciful
desire" of His Highness Maharaj Sri
Ganga Singh Ji, a connoisseur of architecture
and one blessed with an artistic sense.
It was designed by him to be a separate
pleasure garden adjoining the Zanana Bagh
( Royal Ladies' Garden ) of Lalgarh Palace.
In 1993, the house of Bikaji converted
this masterpiece of architecture in to
a heritage hotel - Hotel Basant Vihar
