With over 25,000 camels exchanged, the Pushkar Fair is arguably the world's largest camel fair. Call Us At 9828249879

Another striking feature of the Pushkar Fair is the camel competition.Beautifully decorated camels parade while competing in a beauty contest and the best bedecked camel wins the prize.In one of the competition large numbers of people are made to sit on the camel's back.The camel now lopes across the sand and throws its riders off its back amidst cheers and jeers from thousands of spectators.The camel which succeeds in accommodating the maximum number of people on its back wins the competition. Though spectators take pleasure in the festivity and fervor it is the animal that enjoys the most.The camels are seen preening before the crowd seeming to enjoy every bit of attention that they receive during these five days.

The fair is also the time when the varied art of colorful Rajasthan is exhibited in front of the curious tourists. From jewelry items for cattle ranging from saddles saddle-straps beads strings and cowries to items specifically exhibited for the human folks the array of artifacts exhibited is just endless Silver ornaments and bead necklaces from Nagaur patchwork printed textiles as well as the famous tie n dye fabrics from Ajmer are a major attraction. Fashion however does not end here.The fair is also known for the varied body tattoos it offers. Since this is the time to gear up the town's otherwise slacking business, every household is seen to set up some or the other stall to allure the passing crowd. A rural bazaar that it is, one either has to walk or hire a camel while trotting around. There are food stalls as well. However, since Pushkar is a religious site, non-vegetarian food as well as alcohol is strictly prohibited. Call Us At 9828249879

Importance
Pushkar is among the five dhams or pilgrimages that are held in high esteem by Hindus, the others being Badrinath, Puri, Rameswaram, and Dwarka. It is said that in battle lord Brahma killed the demon Vajra Nabh with a lotus flower, whose petals floated down to earth and landed in three places in and around Pushkar where lakes sprang up. According to legends, Pushkar Lake was surrounded by 500 temples and 52 palaces (several rajas and maharajas maintained palaces here for pilgrimage) at one point. The Brahma temple is the most important temple here and is, in fact, the only Brahma temple of India.Call Us At 9828249879
