Ajmer presents Urs with great pride and fervour, as it represents the entire city’s culture and beliefs. On this honoured day of festivities, the death anniversary of Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti, the patron saint, is recognized. As one of the largest gatherings and celebrations regarding pilgrims and devotees, Urs is a truly memorable experience to witness firsthand. The festival entails activities such as waiving a white flag of symbolism, decorating the sacred tomb with offerings of rose, jasmine, sandalwood paste and incense, and covering the tomb with a silk cloth. After this ceremony, poetry performances take place with the addition of loud, intriguing music, introducing the upcoming feast of holy food. For a more modern and current festival, located nearby Ajmer is the extremely unique and flashy Pushkar Camel Fair. Camels are brought from all over the country, dressed up in ornaments, decorations and eye-catching clothing to be put on display. There are also interesting activities featured during the fair, such as camel racing, camel auctioning, and even folk dances, theatre plays and magic shows! The Pushkar Camel Fair is celebrated in great fun, and is the most recommended to witness for tourists, as it is quite a rare sight. Another great perk to visiting during the Pushkar Camel Fair is having the ability to purchase traditional Rajasthani goods from the featured stalls.No Events Found.
