Do you know about Pushkar Fair or Pushkar Mela ?
Well, it is a five-day camel and livestock annual fair, held in the town of Pushkar in the states of Rajasthan, India. It is one of the world’s largest camel fair. I am glad to share that we visited Rajasthan during the best time of the year because we got a chance to see this amazing Mela/Fair.
It is a Cultural Fair where the stalls and shops catering both to human and the cattle are set up. Clothing, jewelleries and tattoos carry an ethnic charm with a typically Rajasthani aura. Besides this, the versatile cultural reserve of Rajasthan comes alive in Pushkar Fair in form of folk dance, music, puppet shows and so on.
Pushkar, the only place which has the sole Brahma temple in the whole world. Therefore, it is one of the most sacred towns of India and has a beautiful lake as its prime attraction.
As, you can see in my pics that before reaching mela I was dressed differently, and since there were so many things which I wanted to buy and try it on so therefore I couldn’t resist and eventually I did try and got into the pushkar attire. I bought a Rajasthani T-Shirt. It was available in so many colors. It had this amazing camel picture print which I liked a lot. Also, I wanted to get the exact Rajasthani feel so I bought Rajasthani Pagadi too. I bought lots of bangles and neck piece as well. All in all It was a totally different feeling which I enjoyed thoroughly.
You should also visit Pushkar fair at least once in your lifetime.
