Pushkar mela is an annual multi-day livestock fair and cultural event held in the town of Pushkar, Rajasthan. Pushkar mela usually happens in late October or early November and is a delight for photographers. BUT in my opinion its over crowded with photographers, the number of photographers are equivalent to the subject. Apart from the trading of livestock, it is an important pilgrimage season for Hindus to visit the Pushkar lake.
Pushkar is known for temples dedicated to the Hindu creator-god Brahma in India and remains the most prominent and only one among them.
How to reach?
Pushkar is connected with Bus and trains. The nearest Airport is Jaipur, which is 140Km far from Pushkar. In my suggestion, if you are travelling from Delhi, the roadway is pretty comfortable and accessible.
Where to stay?
I stayed at Sukoon Resort, which is centrally located and a neat place. Pushkar is also known as Garden of roses, at the back of Sukoon road there's a huge rose farm.
You can even check the Zostel in Pushkar, it will be a cheap and comfortable stay. But do book your hotel before hand as during the Fair hotels might charge you more.
