Bikaner has a great influence on the history of Rajasthan. In 1459, Prince Rao Bikaji, a descendant of the founder of Jodhpur, Rao Chodaki, established his own kingdom in Bikaner. He chose a barren land called "Jungladesh" to shape the city of Bikaner into a magnificent city. The city had adequate water for travellers on Central Asia and the Gujarat coast trade route. Bika the ruler built a fort which was built again and known as the famous Junagarh fort. Later in the 18th century, there was a war between the rulers of Bikaner and Jodhpur. The British troops put down the war. Maharaja Gaj Singh ruled Bikaner for many years and added a lot of features to the famous fort. Later under Maharaj surat Singh's rule Bikaner came under the British Government due to a treaty.
