Located in the Ajmer district, the holy city of Pushkar is often described as one of the most important pilgrimage sites of India and the Indians. The city is located on the shores of Pushkar Lake , which according to legend was created by the tears of Lord Shiva and is one of the most ancient cities of India and the date of its origin is unknown and is often associated with Hindu mythology. It is famous for its temples and various ghats (stairways) that are frequented by hundreds of visitors throughout the year. The water of the lake is considered sacred and therefore is responsible for the reputation of the city as a place of pilgrimage. But perhaps the most illustrious attraction of Pushkar is the annual camel fair which is held between the end of October and the beginning of November. A livestock fair that also hosts events, competitions, dances, music and attracts thousands of visitors and curious.
