Cattle Fair.

The Nagaur Festival is held every year in the period between January-February in the quaint Rajput town of Nagaur. The Nagaur festival is essentially a cattle fair and every year close to 75,000 camels, bullocks and horses are traded. In fact the sheer volume of trading is astonishing to the first time visitors.

To add spice to the festivities, fun events like tug-of-war, camel and bullock races and cockfights along with enchanting folk music of Jodhpur add a surreal charm to the whole festival.

One of the most amazing feature of Nagaur Festival is the vibrant red-chilly market that is exclusively set up at the festival premises. By all accounts this red-chilly market or "mirchi bazaar" as it is popularly referred to in the local parlance is the largest in Asia.
