 The story behind the origin of Pushkar is truly captivating. It is believed that Pushkar floated to the surface when Brahma dropped a lotus flower on earth. The city of Pushkar is significantly associated with a few popular sacred places in India, Brahma temple being one of the major ones. Along with that, rows of sacred ghats can be seen along the beautiful lake, hence offering a mesmerizing view.

The fair is known for camels, which can be seen everywhere in huge numbers. The fair is a more than 100 year old cattle trading activity. The camels are brought on foot from distant places. Dressed up in vivid and colorful clothes, they are ornamented with clothes jewellery, silver bells etc. These camels take part in activities like beauty contests and dance show. The event is quite a spectacle and not surprisingly, experiences a heavy footfall of tourists.

 You will get to photograph how the Pushkar Lake stands calmly day after day, night after night, doing nothing if not reflecting the world (or however much it can contain of it) making even the most still, resolute things shake gently in its rippling waters, while its banks throb with activity, with music, dance, joy, bargaining, and all moods festive. It is an unparalleled & unforgettable experience to capture the vibrancy of the entire state of Rajasthan in one place. The frame captures culture, religious legacy, rural flavor and rustic core natural beauty
