The famous Pushkar fair, which attracts lakhs of people including foreign tourists, has begun in Ajmer, Rajasthan, with a number of cultural programmes, group dance and camel race attracting lakhs of visitors.

The state government has for the first time allocated an additional budget of Rs two crore for the arrangements in the fair. Lakhs of visitors are likely to visit the fair in Pushkar, some 15 kms from Ajmer, officials said.

Many international and domestic tourists throng to Pushkar to witness one of the most colourful and popular fairs in India. Thousands of animals, mainly camels, are brought to the fair to be sold and traded.
