Pushkar Fair

Pushkar Fair or Pushkar Camel Fair, as it is also known as is one of those events when people from all over Rajasthan make their way to the small town of Pushkar. This is more so for camel riders, people with a religious bent of mind and not to forget tourists from all over the world. For traders, it is a unique opportunity to meet traders from different parts of the state and earn some profit while for devotees; it is a means to purify their soul by taking a dip in the holy Pushkar Lake. It is a good opportunity for those who wish to see trading in full swing, however once the fair begins business no longer remains so important. It is the festivity that takes over the commercial aspect of the fair. As per mythological saga Lord Brahma (the creator of the universe) was once in search of a place to perform his holy yagna. During his search, a lotus accidentally dropped from his hand and lead to water sprouting from the place where it fell. Lord Brahma performed his yagna there. Today, the otherwise quiet town of Pushkar in known as housing the only Brahma temple of the country. During Kartik Purnima, devotees come to take a dip in the water of the holy Pushkar lake (the place where the lotus fell).The fair is replete with colours and joyous activities. Camels form an intrinsic part of these activities. There are camel shows, race and a competition for best decorated camel. Apart from this, folk dances of Rajasthan also draw huge crowd.
