Hindu pilgrims gather at dawn in Pushkar, near the sacred lake, to perform their
poojas-religious rituals. Pushkar, a small town in the western province of Rajasthan, India, is famous for its annual Camel Fair or Pushkar Mela, which is held at the end of October. This small white walled town becomes transformed into a dazzling fairground famous for its camel races and meditating sadus, holy men.
