Pushkar, India: The Pushkar Camel Fair takes place during the holy days of the Hindu month of Kartik. During this time, many make a pilgrimage to Pushkar to worship at the temples and bathe in the holy lake in order to wash away residue from undesirable karma. Not only does Pushkar become a pilgrimage pulse-point but it also becomes a place for commerce as many come to trade and sell camels, horses and other live-stock.
