One year – three times already chasing light with Xploring Light and there’s always something new being on a tour with them. Before the tour has even come to an end my plan and request to block a seat on the next one is now a mandatory custom.

Overview of the Photo Tour

Get a glimpse of what’s in store

A small sleepy town of Rajasthan suddenly comes alive with riot of colours and frenzied burst of activity. An astonishing 50,000 camels converge on the tiny desert town of Pushkar, in India’s state of Rajasthan, for the annual Pushkar Fair. It’s a fascinating and peculiar sight, and a great opportunity to witness an old traditional style Indian festival.


The original intention behind the Pushkar Camel Fair was to attract local camel and cattle traders to do business during the holy Kartik Purnima festival, held in Pushkar around the full moon in the Hindu lunar month of Kartika. The fair has now also become a major tourist attraction.


PUSHKAR FAIR. Very few, if at all any, fairs in the world can match the liveliness of Pushkar. Most people associate the Pushkar Fair with the world’s largest camel fair. But it is much more than that. It is an occasion for villagers from far and near to gather together and enjoy a welcome break from their harsh life of the arid desert. And enjoy they do! In dazzling style and colors.


It is an occasion for Hindu pilgrims to converge for a holy dip in the sacred Pushkar Lake to “wash away the sins of a lifetime” and pay obeisance at the ONLY Brahma temple in the world.


For the visitor, it is an unparalleled and unforgettable experience to capture the vibrancy of the entire state of Rajasthan in one place. Pushkar is not a place.. Its an experience in itself and no words can ever justify the experience one has in Pushkar Fair.


For photographers, it is an unparallel & 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.
