Nagaur Fair

  • Ruled by the Rajputs once upon a time, Nagaur is now a picturesque town in the state of Rajasthan. Every year in the month or January or February, an eight day fair is held here. This fair is a cattle trading fair, the second largest of the kind in Rajasthan. The town is flooded with over 80,000 farm animals- cows, buffalos, horses and even camels. The animals are grandly decorated while their owners wear their traditional, colourful Rajasthani attire coupled with their long moustaches, haggle with each other over prices of the cattle. There is a lot more to it than livestock trade though. This fair is also has many stalls that sell spices- the largest ‘mirchi’ (chilli) bazaar in the world is held here. Handicrafts and art items, camel leather accessories and even wooden items are also sold here. After a day of bargaining, locals relax with events such as tug of war, camel races, bullock races and cock fights. Jugglers, puppeteers and story tellers strive to entertain tourists with their performances as traditional Jodhpuri music rings out in the background.
