During the fullmoon nights of November each year, the rich colorful tradition of Rajasthan, India comes alive at Pushkar. A small little hamlet, around 18 kilometers from the religious city of Ajmer and 145 kilometers from Jaipur, Pushkar, is host to the annual Pushkar Camel Fair. It is visited by foreign and Indian tourists and is perhaps the largest fair of its kind in the world.

Visiting the fair, indeed, is a unique experience. The winter brings the cool winds, the golden sand dunes reflect various colors with every phase of the Sun, vibrantly dressed men and women, shops selling colorful goods, decorated and bedecked Camel and cattle add to the charm.

Pushkar has the only temple in India dedicated to Lord Brahma, creator. According to a legend, as Lord Brahma was searching for a suitable place to perform a yagnya, the lotus fell of his hands and the place where it fell sprung out water. Since then the lake of Pushkar was formed. The lake still stands with 52 bathing Ghat on its banks. People throng to these ghat to take a dip in the holy lake and wash away all their sins!

It was on the full moon day in the month of Kartik that the lake was formed. This religious reason has given the world an opportunity to be a part of one of the most spectacular fairs of the world.
