History of Pushkar Camel Fair Pushkar
The month of Kartik is a holy month in the Hindu calendar. A festival to celebrate the events of Kartik was held in Pushkar every year, called the Kartik Purnima festival. The Pushkar Camel fair was set up as a way to attract the tradesmen and cattle herders who attended the festival.

The primary focus of the Pushkar Camel Fair was camel trading, and this expanded to horses and cattle — all the animals of commercial and domestic importance to the desert people of Pushkar, a town in the state of Rajasthan in India.

Although the original intention of the fair was to attract tradesmen and bring them all together for commercial activities, the fair has now become one of the biggest tourist attractions in the state of Rajasthan. Understanding the value of the fair, the state government has invested a lot of money in its development, and today it is more than just a space where cattle tradesmen can purchase and sell cattle.

The modern Pushkar Camel Fair is a spectacle that represents the culture of the town of Pushkar, the tribal people of the desert, and the state of Rajasthan. The commercial fair has been transformed into a multi-day carnival that also includes the festival of Kartik Purnima.
