I went to Pushkar in November 2019 to document and photograph the “Camel Fair”. I flew from Singapore to Jaipur and then took a local bus to Pushkar. It was a last-minute travel decision. Pushkar is located in the state of Rajasthan, which is in the Northern part of India, 150 kilometers Southwest of Jaipur.

Pushkar Camel Fair – India

The city of Pushkar is famous for its annual fair, the “Pushkar Camel Fair”, featuring a trading herd of cattle, horses, and camels. It is held over seven days in Autumn, marking Kartika Purnima (full moon), according to the Hindu calendar, which usually falls during the months of October to November.

I was not disappointed with the folk, and the entertainment. It was truly an interesting experience and a pure joy to film and photograph the event.

What you can see:
