Pushkar camel fair, rajasthan, India

Boasting over 400 temples, Pushkar is a sacred place for Hindus, who believe that over the course of this five-day festival the gods pay a visit to the region and bless the devout. Each November, the still waters of the Pushkar Lake are disturbed by thousands of devotees who converge upon the spot, submerging themselves and filling the air with the sound of their prayers. Their religious fervor is accompanied by a grand-scale camel fair, at which hundreds of animals are raced, bought, and sold, and paraded in fine jewelry, bells, and bangles.
