Festivals of Rajasthan

Experience the vibrant Fairs and Festivals of Rajasthan during your royal journey aboard the Palace on Wheels. As the Palace on Wheels chugs through the heart of Rajasthan in the kind of royal style that only the Maharajas of yesteryear could have enjoyed, you not only experience the romance of old-fashioned rail travel, but also get to experience the splendid architecture, colourful bazaars, the rich culture, the myriad topography of the Thar Desert, the vibrant people and colourful fairs and festivals of Rajasthan.

Rajasthan is a vibrant, exotic state in India where tradition and royal glory meet in a riot of colors against the vast backdrop of sand and desert. Referred to as the Desert Jewel of India, Rajasthan shimmers with even more vibrancy during the time of its colourful fairs and festivals. The desert glitters with the colors of joyous celebration and gay abandon with every fair and festival of Rajasthan. There is a celebration for every religious occasion, every change of season and every harvest, all invariably a reflection of the genius of their arts and crafts and their ascetic refinement.

In fact, celebrations occur almost round the year and are a splendid opportunity for tourists to gain an insight into the life of the Rajasthan during their travel. Other than the traditional fairs, recently established festivals which involve elephants, camel races, dance and music have been specially organised for tourists. Among the better known fairs and festivals of Rajasthan are:

Pushkar Fair, Pushkar (November): The well-known and marked with largest participation of all the festivals of Rajasthan, Pushkar is an important pilgrimage as well as the venue of a mammoth cattle fair. Bazaars, auctions, music and sports are highlight of this event.
