Bikaner city is right at the northwest of the Rajasthan state in India. The fact that it has the only camel breeding farm in India makes the celebration important and popular enough for locals and tourists. Moreover, the city is also known for its rich crop farms, wool production and mining.

During the festival, different camel competitions take place. There are the best decorated camel, fur cutting design, camel milking, camel race and the best camel hair cut competitions.
