Pushkar, a small, dusty town in Rajasthan is also an important pilgrimage site for Hindus.
Devotees converge to the many temples in the town, especially the Brahma temple, one of the few in the world, and the only one in India.
The dromedaries are the highlight, no doubt. Don’t miss the camel beauty contest where wonderfully bedecked camels vie for a prize. There are camel races, dances, and parades that are also equally entertaining.
This fair is a great opportunity to sample different aspects of Rajasthan. Try the rustic, local food comprising delightful staple snacks like tikkis, kachoris, and samosas. Don’t miss the Rajasthani specialty, a delicious swirl of sweetened milk and cottage cheese called ‘kalakhand’.
