Originally a cattle and camel trade fair, it has evolved into a festival that also includes music, dance, games and competitions representing the culture of Rajasthan. Pulling some 200,000 local and international attendees annually, the fair coincides with Kartik, the eighth lunar month of the Hindu calendar, considered the holiest month and the prime time to take a dip in Pushkar Lake. Hindus believe doing this promotes spiritual wellness and helps them attain salvation.
