Pushkal festival specialities: Pushkar Camel Fair is basically livestock trading fair but it is a fair where one gets to experience spiritual rituals, and witnesses the unique culture of the Rajasthani people.

The Pushkar Fair was primarily a livestock fair, where traders as well as farmers from the Thar Desert region bought and sold camels, horses, cattle, and other animals. The fair’s primary purpose was to facilitate these transactions. Back then, the fair had a pretty agenda  to procure or sell off livestock. However, over the years, it has evolved into a multi-dimensional extravaganza.
