The peaceful lakeside town of Pushkar is filled each year at this event unique and indispensable. Originally designed to attract traders of camels and cattle to do business during the festival Katrik Purnima, the Pushkar camel festival has become a major tourist attraction. The Indians with their herds of camels arrive in the small town on the edge of the Thar Desert a week in advance, which officially lasts for nine days around the full moon. The highlight is undoubtedly the camel race, which takes place amidst singing and dancing in the amphitheater. Although the fair is traditionally a sideline to the main Hindu festival, the carnival atmosphere makes the event accessible to all. In addition to ride on camels or in carts, it is also possible to arrange camel rides in the surrounding desert. At the time of the festival, the streets are overrun by tourists, travelers, hawkers, painted and bizarrely sadhus twisted (holy men), children, animals and bicycles - all of Indian life concentrated in one place and stretching through the narrow streets of the city.
