Pushkar Mela is a splendid fest that visualizes the serene lake and the white buildings of the tiny town of Pushkar that shines like a pearl in Rajasthan’s coronet. This festival had its significance of over 2,000 years when it was treasured as the mark of Pushkar unlike the city whose sacred lake washes sins and cure terminal diseases.

Earlier, Pushkar Festival hosts a large fair where people from all over the country come up to trade livestock like camels, sheep, and cattle. But, in last few years, it has grown into a massive parish which shows Rajasthan’s unique artisans, colorful cultural retreat, authentic delicacies, and lots of activities to entertain millions of tourists.

Hence, we can say visiting the Pushkar Mela 2016 should be on the priority list of everyone. And, if you haven’t been there even single once

Here are 12 reasons why you should explore Pushkar Fair

  1. Watch out Cattle Trading

One of the biggest cattle trade in Rajasthan, you can witness in Pushkar at this time.

  1. Witness Pushkar Lake transform into Hinduism’s holiest pool

From Kartik Ekadashi to Kartik Poornima (October-November), Pushkar Mela is celebrated for seven days. According to Hindu calendar and scriptures, the full moon night of Kartik month is considered so auspicious that on this day when god Brahma sprung up the Pushkar Lake, 330 million gods and goddesses came to bath in it. Since then, for centuries, people come along to take a dip in the Pushkar Lake during the full moon to wash their sins and get connected to gods.

  1. Rock with India’s most famous fusion bands

Rajasthan government has also made an effort to entertain the crowd with few of the excellent fusion bands. This has driven people attraction towards Mela along with the livestock trading and display of artisans. Last year the Indian Ocean entertained the crowd and this time, Prem Joshua & Band are all set to perform.

  1. Participate in the enthralling competitions

Apart from entertainment, Pushkar Mela hosts all kind of sports like camel race, moustaches, stunts, bride & groom competition, etc. The pride of Rajasthan survives in its great moustaches and colorful culture.

Budget hotels, backpacking hotels, heritage houses, and luxury camps are intended to book your trip to check out Pushkar fair. Staying in camps surrounded by hills of the Aravali ranges on one side, and vast open countryside of rural Rajasthan is something worth to go slightly with your budget. And, the ones who are not so comfortable with camping can have expensive alternatives. Alluring luxury camps are also the well-known facility with a rustic glimpse.

  1. Encounter the beauty of Rajasthani art at Shilpgram

Many rural artisan communities who are the heart of Rajasthani culture and art gather in Shilpgram to present the best artistic skills. And, that is why Pushkar fair and Shilpgram attract the best of India’s artisans. Situated near the mela grounds, Shilpgram invites artisans to set up permanent and makeshift stalls to promote their art in local as well among tourists. They sell almost everything like paintings, leatherware, puppets, and jewelry.

According to Indian mythology, Pushkar Lake is one of the most treasured water bodies since ancient times. One can found the remark of it in 4th-century coins and inscribed on 2ndh century Stupas. This reveals that the lake was a pilgrimage thousands of years ago. Though it didn’t lie to the route of Greek, Chinese, Persian, and Mughal travelers to find their way on its revered site. Its view is even more divine when the sun sets on its horizon. Golden highlights with the last orange rays, people travel long distances to get a glimpse of it.
