Camel fair of Pushkar, one of the largest Camel fairs in the world, is a fascinating spectacle that occurs once a year (November) pulling a lot of tourists from around the world. Filled with competitions ranging from "longest moustache" to cricket competition between local Pushkar club and random foreign tourists, hundreds of shops selling traditional Rajasthani items and thousands of camels dressed up beautifully making it arguably the most colorful gathering of humanity and livestock on this planet.
When visiting the fair one should definitely go and watch traditional Rajasthani dance, take a camel back ride and participate in at least one competition and only then move forward to explore more of the town. Deep in town on the banks of Pushkar Lake stands the next stop, the famous Temple of Hindu God Brahma. The Brahma temple, where Artists from around the world take pilgrimage to request inspiration of Brahma and Saraswati, his consort, the goddess of creative impulse, the source of music, beauty and eloquence, should be on the must visit list of every tourist visiting Pushkar.
