The name 'Pushkar Fair' and "Pushkar ka Mela" gets many buyers both in India and the World as a whole. India, being a country of age old religions, countless temples and shrines and the rituals attached to them is home to thousands of fairs that occupy every season in a calendar year. Pushkar fair is one of the biggest events in India. And for a fair in India, it takes to be much more than just average to stand out. The significance of Pushkar Fair is many faceted which is closed intertwined with the unique features of the town of Pushkar. Situated near the famous city of Ajmer in Rajasthan, Pushkar is far away from the din and bustle of a modern city.
