Arjansar is a small village in Rajasthan. The neighbouring country of Pakistan is only 100 km (two hours’ drive) west of the village. The province of Pakistan which borders the area is Punjab. The village in itself may not have anything interesting to offer. A ride to the Pakistan border with a prior permission from relevant authorities may prove to be little exciting. A visit to the neighbouring hub of Bikaner with its forts, camel races, temples and the bhujia is also worth a try.
Places to Stay
Being a village, naturally there are no places to put up for the night. One is forced to venture into Bikaner (127 km away) for lodging. There are a couple of good budget hotels in the city. Some of the options which are worth a try are Laji Hotel (Tariff – Rs. 500), Shri Ram Heritage (Tariff – Rs. 600), Bikaner Hotel (Tariff – Rs. 850), and Shiva’s Regency (Tariff – Rs. 600) among others.
The official language of Arjansar is Hindi.
The important festivals celebrated are Holi in March, Hanuman Jayanti and Dusshera in September-October and Diwali in November.
