Pushkar,a holy city devoted to Hindu God Brahma. is a small tourist town surrounding a small lake which the Hindus consider Holy and come to bathe in. Pushkar is only a short bus ride from the city Ajmer, but seems a world away with only small roads with limited traffic and surrounded by desert. It is a great place to walk around watching the street vendors selling trinkets, langur monkeys running from roof to roof, and cows peacefully eating trash along the side of the road.

Pushkar Camel Fair
Pushkar is also popular for hosting one of the most colorful fairs of Rajasthan - the Pushkar Camel Fair. It coincides with the bright half of the moon during the months of October-November. From time immemorial, people have Pushkar Camel Fairbeen gathering here annually during the month of Kartik to pray to Lord Brahma. The Pushkar fair is known for its hospitable people with colorful veils turbaned heads and colorfully dyed skirts. The cold nights are warmed with the sounds of ektara and the soulful tunes of the Rajasthani folk songs.
