Colors. Camels. Gypsies. Performers. Amusement rides. This is the modern Pushkar Camel Fair, an annual tradition that dates back over 800 years. Camel herders from all over Rajasthan flock to Pushkar to show off and sell their flock.
But it isn’t just camels. There are also various sports and competitions, including the mustache competition and football (soccer) match between foreigners and locals. I spent two weeks there enjoying the festivities from beginning to end and captured some amazing photos. Choosing only 50 was hard — plus I still have over a thousand I haven’t even had time to look at yet! :O
And just wait until you see the videos — Join me on YouTube!
Competitions And Contests
Vendors Were Selling Everything
There Were Even Musical Performances
To which I had a VIP front row pass too 😉
All in all I have 3,096 photos and nearly 17 hours of HD video. Most of it I haven’t even sorted yet, so stay tuned for more 😉
