The festival will be held on 11th and 12th of January 2023 to celebrate Thar desert’s lifeline – “the ship of the desert”, an initiative that has been taken by the Department of Tourism, Government of Rajasthan.
Celebrated on a grand scale every year, this festival revolves around camels and promotes the breeding, taming, and training of these magnificent animals. The pomp and show is no less than the one celebrated in Pushkar and attracts thousands of local and international tourists every year.
The festival starts with a grand procession of camels ever year, adorned in colourful costumes, complete with traditional jewellery like anklets and necklaces. Starting from Junagarh Fort, this lively must-watch procession ends at the Dr. Karni Singh Stadium, that is the main festival venue.
