Every November in accordance with the lunar cycle, the normally tranquil lakeside town of Pushkar changes completely thanks to the camel festival.

Festivities

Thousands of colourful Rajasthanis come to trade and race camels or to enjoy the annual celebrations as the desert transforms into a huge tented city. The festivities are concentrated during a one week period but the days preceding the fair are just as exciting as the participants arrive from all corners of Rajasthan.

Pilgrimage

At other times of the year the character is very different when the small town welcomes pilgrims who come to pay their respects by the sacred lake at the heart of the town, reputed to have been formed by a lotus thrown by the god Brahma.
