Want To Buy A Camel?

The Pushkar Camel Fair also known as the Pushkar Mela begins on Thursday, November 11, and will culminate on Friday next, November 19.

The event which is usually held for five days on an annual basis, did not take place in 2019 and 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year no foreign tourists are allowed to visit the fair.
