The historical town of Pushkar is among the five dhams or pilgrimages that are held in high esteem by Hindus. 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.Pushkar Fair is held each November at the time of the Kartik Purnima full moon, Pushkar Camel Fair is one of India’s most highly-rated travel experiences, a spectacle on an epic scale, attracting more than 25,000 camels, horses, and cattle and visited by over 400,000 people over a period two weeks.
For visitors, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness the color, spectacle, and carnival of one of the last great traditional fair, which brings livestock, farmers, traders and villagers from all over Rajasthan.
