The Pushkar Fair is Mughal India on joyous display and the center of an incredible extravaganza.
Every November, a quiet country town in northern India transforms itself into the place where everyone wants to be.
Throughout the year, pious Hindus flock to Pushkar on pilgrimage to worship at Lord Brahma's temple on an auspicious day. A dip in the waters of Pushkar and a visit to the temple ensure Hindus eternal salvation. However, during November Pushkar becomes much more. Livestock traders curry their finest horses and head for the annual camel and cattle sale. Tribal villagers, dressed in their dazzling traditional best, come together for a kaleidoscopic open-air festival filled with camel races, acrobats, fortune tellers, dancing and feasting. Everything from gaudy camel tassels to vintage gypsy dowry bags is for sale here.
Spend a full day with your expert A&K Tour Director and local guide enjoying the wonder and incredible photographic opportunities, or spend a quiet morning as you walk amid the gypsy campfires. Experience Pushkar Fair with A&K and choose the A&K itinerary ideally designed to match your personal travel expectations.
