The Pushkar Camel Fair

The Pushkar Camel Fair in Rajasthan is considered by many to be Asia's greatest festival. The lunar calendar dictates the date of this most famous India festival, thus transforming a mere livestock show into an auspicious spiritual confluence of man and beast ordained by the heavens. There will be mystics and musicians, camel-wallahs and priests, and vendors plying their wares from the far corners of Rajasthan. It's a riot of color and activity, from sacred bathing rituals to camel races.

Holi

Holi is a riotously colorful festival in India where revelers herald the arrival of spring by hurling colored powder and water at each other. The whole place looks like happy children have been turned loose in a cosmetics factory, but to the Hindus this ritual actually marks the rekindling of the spirit of life. Be sure not to wear your best outfit! You'll be covered from head to toe in purple, green, blue, orange, pink, red and yellow. Celebrated throughout much of Northern India.

Konark

Konark's Sun Temple at the height of summer in Orissa sees very few tourists and is an ancient and exuberant display.

Numerous other Hindu, Muslim, Christian and secular festivals in India abound. Contact an India Travel Specialist for details.
