India is a country known for its unity in diversity and a trip to any part of India will acquaint you with its varied colors. If you have a spirit of adventure and would like to view a state that is rich in history, culture and beautiful landscapes then Rajasthan , the land of kings, is the place to visit. All of you who are spiritually inclined or at least would like to get a glimpse into the colorful mythology of the Hindu religion would do well to plan a trip to Pushkar, as it boasts of being the only place in the Indian subcontinent to have the Brahma temple, the only temple dedicated to the worship of Lord Brahma God of creation. Also, if religion or mythology are not your cup of tea then Pushkar festivals are sure to kindle your interest in this small town of Rajasthan.

Pushkar festivals are usually held during the winter months as the dates are calculated on the lunar movements and fall somewhere at the end or beginning of a year. The festivals are a time of intermingling of the saints and the normal mortals, who all come together to dip in the holy waters and visit the many temples of Pushkar. The Pushkar festivals are not only a time for spiritual revelry and celebration but also of the famed cattle and camel fairs of Pushkar. The tourists are enthralled with the various animals being traded and especially the competitive sports that take place during the fairs. While the days are filled with holy men coming to Pushkar from all over the country and even from abroad, the evenings are a time of celebration.

Pushkar festivals are one of the best ways to get a first hand experience of the Rajasthani culture. The folk artistes give lively performances of song and dance routines that are popular with people all across the globe. And while you are enjoying this spectacular show you can indulge your taste buds with authentic Rajasthani cuisine like Dal-bati-churma. The festivals are indeed one of the best times to experience the true rural India at its best. Also, the warm hospitality of the Indians that is well known across the globe shows itself prominently during the festivals.

Well, the Pushkar festivals are one of the major attractions of visiting Rajasthan but again there is a huge variety of experiences and places waiting to be explored. Each city and town in this desert land has a different story to tell. Also, Rajasthan, a desert land, boasts of having a hill station like Mount Abu as well. So whatever it may be that you are seeking while on a vacation to this beautiful state, you can rest assured about not being disappointed with your tour of this state.
