During the reign of Maharaja Ganga Singh, the first phase of Lallgarh Palace was completed in the year 1902. It was the most completely integrated example of Indo Saracenic architecture and the perfectly realized creation of Sir Samuel Swinton Jacob. Further additions were done from 1906 – 1910. In the year 1972 Dr. Karni Singh established the Ganga Singhji Charitable Trust. He endowed a part of Lallgarh Palace to be used in service of the trust. The other parts were converted into a hotel. All the income from the hotel was to be used for Academic Scholarships, Marriages of girls from poor families, Old Age Pensions and for the maintenance of ancient Sanskrit manuscripts. Lallgarh Palace Hotel has got a total of 38 rooms with attached bath. It is a genuinely extraordinary palace and is a magnificent place t visit. The hotel is today managed by ITC Welcomgroup Hotels.
Maharaja Gaj Singh (1745-87) developed a pleasure palace for his newly wedded Royal Bride, some 20 miles outside the city walls of Bikaner. He built a Palace known as Jal Mahal besides a tank. It had an adjacent durbar hall called Pachis Chowk (25 squares). He established a new settlement beside the royal resort and named it as Gajsinghpura, in honour of himself. It was later known as Gajner. It has a total of 24 rooms (8 rooms in the main building and 16 rooms in the annexe). The location is utterly captivating and rooms in the main building are authentic and still remain untouched
