The Bikaner Camel Festival

Team LSD cannot deny that we just love a festival. Whether art, music, spiritual it doesn't matter to us. Every year, in the month of January, thousands of visitors flock to Bikaner, India for the Camel Festival. This festival features highly prized beasts which are put through a series of tests to find the best animal on the day. The event begins with the artistically shaven camels parading before judges for the competition.

'The Bikaner Camel Festival is an event organized by the Department of Tourism, Art and Culture, of Bikaner, Government of Rajasthan. It takes place every year in the month of January. At this festival the "ships of the desert" are seen at their best. Some spectacular and unusual camel performances like camel races, camel dances, and the bumpy, neck shaking camel rides take place at this event.' Wiki
