Pushkar Camel Fair 2016 Date: 08-15 November

 

 

The small and beautiful town of Pushkar is set in a valley just about 14 km off Ajmer in the north Indian state of Rajasthan. Surrounded by hills on three sides, Pushkar forms an enthralling location and cattle fair which is globally popular and attracts thousands of devotees from all parts of the world.

 

Pushkar is among the five pilgrimages that are regarded in high esteem by Hindus, the others being Badrinath, Puri, Rameswaram, and Dwarka. It is said that in battle lord Brahma killed the demon Vajra Nabh with a lotus flower, whose petals floated down to earth and landed in three places in and around Pushkar where lakes create up. According to legends, Pushkar Lake was enclosed by 500 temples and 52 palaces at one point. The Lord Brahma temple is the most important temple here and is, in fact, the only Brahma temple in India.

 

Pushkar Fair 2016 is celebrated for five days from Kartik Ekadasi to Kartik Poornima. According to Hindu traditional calendar, Kartik Ekadasi is the 11th lunar day (Ekadashi) of the bright fortnight (Shukla Paksha) of the Hindu month of Kartik, and Kartik Poornima is the full moon day or the 15th lunar day of Kartik. Kartik Poornima is the day of the Pushkar Fair, and according to the legends, it's the day when Brahma flowering up the Pushkar Lake. On this day devotees take a bath in the Pushkar lake.
