Camel is an integral part of Rajasthan, the icon of the desert state, part of its cultural identity, and an economically important animal for desert communities in India.
Pushkar camel fair (locally Pushkar ka Mela) is the main traditional way to save Rajasthan's state animal. Held each November at the time of the Kartik Purnima (full moon), the Pushkar fair is one of the largest fairs in India and only one of its kind in the entire world. During the fair, thousands of people from rural India flock to Pushkar, along with their camels for several days of livestock trading, pilgrimage and religious festival. The fair is usually celebrated for five days from Kartik ekadashi to Kartik purnima. The full moon day is the day, according to legend, when the Hindu God Brahma sprung up the Pushkar Lake, thus numerous people take a holy bath in the sacred water.
