Bikaner Camel Festival Rajasthan
The beautifully adorned camels steal the spotlight at the much acclaimed Bikaner Camel Festival, which is celebrated every year in the month of January and holds a significant place for the people of Rajasthan. The avant-garde festival is exclusively dedicated to the ship of the dessert that was the sole source of transportation and livelihood for the native people of Rajasthan and surrounding places. In the earlier times, there was limited development and thus, no source of technology and automobiles for people. Camels were a good substitute then.
 
 
The festival observes a huge gathering of visitors, foreign immigrants and the villagers. The two-day camel celebration commences with a magnificent procession of the beautifully adorned camels against a breathtaking backdrop of the ancient Junagarh Fort which look mesmerising and awestruck. As the camels proceed to the sandy spreads of the Polo Ground, the visitors follow suit to observe the noteworthy events.
