This festival is celebrated with a lot of zeal and gusto among the people and a lot of tourists flock to this place to enjoy the unique flavour of this festival. Nagaur is located half way between Bikaner and Jodhpur in Rajasthan. The fair is renowned for trading in cows, bullocks, camels and horses. People come from far and wide to buy and sell cattle. Another attraction of the fair is the Mirchi Bazaar. Wooden items, iron crafts and leather accessories as well as local handicrafts, cloth and jewellery are on sale during the fair. Various games and sports like camel races, horse races, tug of war, cock fights and even longest moustache competitions are organised and are immensely popular.
