The Pushkar Camel and Horse Market is one of the things you must have seen at least once in your life. Tens of thousands of animals, each better decorated than the next, are traded during this annual market.

 

 

The musicians are Pabu Ram (ravanhatta player and singer) and his wife Menghi (singer). They belong to the Nayak Bhopa tribe. Thanks to Hugues Graseli for this valuable information.

 

These musicians are kalbeliya, at the very bottom of the social scale, another tribe living in particular from their art in Rajasthan: music (pongal and dhol), dance and song. The dancers wear beautiful costumes. Some groups are very famous and perform as far as the West.

In Rajasthan, dromedaries have always had exceptional value. A sign of wealth and a much appreciated working tool, the dromedaries are pampered and decorated for sale at the largest camel market in the world, in Pushkar in Rajasthan.

Alongside the camels, the Marwari horses are the stars of this colorful market.

 

about the place, Pushkar:

Pushkar is an important spiritual center in Rajasthan. It has many temples and is a place of pilgrimage for both Hindus and Sikhs.

But what also makes it famous is its huge camel and marwari market which takes place every year in November.
