The camel fair is usually celebrated during the full moon day of Kartik in the Hindu calendar. Legend has it that the Hindu god Brahma sprung up the Pushkar Lake during the full moon day, thus many people dip in its sacred waters. This year, Pushkar Camel Fair is celebrated from October 31 to November 6. You still have time to prepare your backpacks and join in the fun at India’s Pushkar Camel Fair.
