Pushkar camel fair 2021
Pushkar camel fair:- Pushkar, a place where the only temple of Lord brahma( creator of this world )exists. This city is visited by people mostly because of it’s holy lake(The Pushkar Lake) where the pilgrims from all over the country come here to vanish/remove their sins by taking dips into this lake a number of times.
We won’t go much deeper into the history of Pushkar as that’s not we are focusing right now. So as we said this City of Rajasthan is visited mostly by the pilgrims but there is a period when the scenario changes. That is, in the months of October to November, Rajasthan’s most prestigious festival arrives(“The pushkar camel fair“).

One can have a very good sightseeing of the fair as it has a lot to offer. From Camel trading or horses/cattle trading, camel racing/dancing to Carnival(music, dancing, magic, etc.). Everyone who has camels come about before a week of the fair in order to trade their camels. And Camels are dressed colorfully, shaved up and then some are made to dance, race to entertain the tourists/public gathered there.
Initially, this fair was used to be for the traders only who gather at a common place to do their business of trading that’s why it’s name is “Pushkar camel fair”. But as the time went on and Rajasthan tourism was
