Located at a distance of around 7 km from the city, National Research Centre on Camel is one of the best attractions in Bikaner. It is home to various types of camels in huge numbers. It is a government owned and run research and camel breeding center. This center helps the locals in earning more from their camels. They center also offers assistance to them for good upkeep of this extremely useful animal, the ‘Ship of the desert’. It was founded in 1984, and is also known as Camel Breeding Farm.
The site of camel roaming freely in the center is quite interesting. At around 9 AM, around 60 camels are taken to the desert. They are back to the center in the afternoon. There is also a souvenir shop inside the center. At the entry gate, there is a museum that displays history of the center about its establishment, initiatives and growth. There are around 400 camels at the National Research Centre on Camel. There is an on-site Camel Milk Parlor too. Visitors can also enjoy camel riding and camel safari, two facilities offered here.
