Pushkar Mela



A scarlet-turbaned Rajasthani tribesman leads his troop of camels across the desert to the annual Pushkar Mela. Every autumn, thousands of people from the nomadic desert tribes of Rajasthan gather dressed in their colorful finery to trade camels and horses, visit the sacred temples on Pushkar Lake, and have fun camel racing, singing, and exchanging tales late into the night around the campfire.
