In the small town of pushkar near Ajmer the pushkar Camel fair takes place. Its fascinating and pecular sight and opportunity to witness old traditional Indian Festival. The camels are dressed up, paraded, shaved, entered into beauty contests, raced, made to dance, and traded. A huge carnival is held, with an array of musicians, magicians, dancers, acrobats, snake charmers and carousel rides to entertain the crowd.On the negative side, the huge influx of tourists means that many locals see the fair as a money-making opportunity. Be prepared to be pestered by beggars, gypsies, and kids. Camel traders will also ask for generous amounts if you want to take their photos.
