India and the Camel Fair at Pushkar
 

Throughout most of the year, Pushkar appears to be just another tranquil little town along the Thar Desert, but for one week every fall it comes alive in a festival of sights and sounds unlike anywhere else. The Pushkar Fair originated as a festival to honor Lord Brahma, creator god of the Hindu religion, since Pushkar is the site of the only pilgrimage shrine in all of India dedicated to Brahma. Today, the fair is a major cultural event and attendants include musicians, holy men, performers, merchants and, of course, tourists.


Upon joining the fair, you will find yourself surrounded by the experiences and wonders of another world. Camels, one of the centers of the festivities, participate in thrilling desert races and are specially adorned and paraded around for a beauty contest. Amidst the celebration, religious devotees gather to bathe in the sacred waters of Pushkar Lake to wash away their sins. On the night of the full moon, tiny leaf boats are set afloat on the lake’s surface, each lit with a small candle, creating an amazing spectacle of moving, floating stars.


Perhaps the most famous aspect of the fair is the trading and shopping. Horses, goats, sheep and especially camels parade about everywhere as deals are discovered and negotiations are made. Jewelry and crafts are abundant as well. Beaded necklaces, silver ornaments, clothing and pottery are just a few of the offerings that will delight consumers of all kinds. Although alcohol and meat-dishes are prohibited, the vast array of food and drink available will ensure that you will never miss them.
