Pushkar Fair Rajasthan – Indulge in Traditions
Rajasthan – the most colourful state of India – offers a lot to enjoy the rhythmic beats of spirituality. Those who look for a perfect blend of spirituality and festivity must take a tour to Camel Pushkar Fair. This camel festival simply puts color to its every emotion as it is undoubtedly the largest camel fair of the world. Located at a distance of about satta 11 km from Ajmer, the city of Pushkar is popular among tourists from all over the world as it is the only place that houses the only temple dedicated to Lord Brahma. The true beauty of the place lies in beautiful hills that surrounded the city from three sides.
This five day fair is organized from Kartik Ekadashi to Kartik Poornima as per the Hindu calendar (October / November). The city witnesses maximum crowd from October to March. People believe that a holy dip in the Pushkar Lake and paying obeisance at the Brahma temple can wash away all their sins of a lifetime.
o Matka phod competition, moustache competition, and bridal competition make the environment livelier.
o From the past few years, a cricket match is also being organized between the local Pushkar club and a team of random foreign tourists.
o Women in colourful outfits can be seen near the stalls to buy bracelets, clothes, textiles and fabrics.
