Pushkar is a location based at a distance of Around 135 Kms from Jaipur and is famous for its one and only "Lord Brahma" temple in India.A pond with 52 different Ghats dedicated to different communities.

Every year in the during the starting of winter's a special and one of its own kind Fair is organised which is one of the Largest Cattle Fair of the World.People from all over the India come to attend this festival and also to purchase and sale their cattle.This is also known as a Camel Fair but now a days along with camel's , horses ,cows,oxes and many other animals are also taken up.

This year the festival was fantastic and Department of Tourism has really worked hard to make this event a successful event and they succeeded.

Beautiful photos - I love the camel drinking water - looking at his own reflection. Thank you so much for taking me on such wonderful journeys - to places I will probably never be able to go to on my own.

It is good to see you blogging again Bharat! A lovely post with wonderful images. The horse looked very majestic I can see why it was the most expensive one there.

It is always so nice to see a part of the world which is so different from my own.
