Pushkar To Not Host Cattle Fair This Year

Lakhs of tourists from various countries have been invited to the event. The invites were sent by the Rajasthan Tourism Department under the Pushkar Chalo Abhiyaan. It is also known as the Pushkar Camel Fair as it is one of the largest cattle fairs as well. But this time, due to the rapidly spreading lumpy skin disease, the popular cattle fair won’t be a part of the event. The Pushkar Mela is incomplete without the popular dessert safari. There are camping sites as well for you to explore the beauty of the state. They also organise a very unique Indian groom and bride contest.
