As if it were the reincarnation of the massive and mythical Woodstock Festival, the Pushkar Fair gathers more than 200,000 people each year from all corners of India.

The fair - one of the largest camels, horses and cattle in the world - is also a great cultural event that brings together musicians, games, camel races, sports competitions, jugglers, storytellers and even a gigantic amusement park .

It begins with the month of the Hindu Kartik calendar and ends with the Kartik Purnima, which generally overlaps in late October and early November on the Gregorian calendar. The festival coincides with the important pilgrimage for Hindus to Pushkar Lake in worship of Brahma.
