Often described as a feast for the eyes, Pushkar Fair is among India’s famous religious festivals and livestock fairs. Featured in numerous travel shows, films and magazines, the Pushkar Fair offers a once in a lifetime magical experience for travelers – looking for out of the world experience.The Pushkar Fair is celebrated for five days from the Karthik Ekadashi to Karthik Poornima (full moon day) according to the Hindu calendar, about 10 days after Diwali.
Every year thousands of pilgrims congregate for a holy bath in Mathura to mark Kartik and other celebrations, after these celebrations cleaning the ghats is a major task for municipality. There is always a support from the civilian volunteers and organizations to help municipality in cleaning. Every year the challenge is clearing the dead fish from the lake. This is become a routine story here in Pushkar lake every year, I’ve been told that 50,000 fishes died last year after the festival, said a priest at the ghat. This is due to the lighting ghee and oil lamps (diyas) inside the pond by pilgrims. They never listen to public notices.full moon apears on a Poornima, Pushkar. Rajasthan
