JAISALMER: The Mallinath Fair Tilwara started at Balotara in Barmer from Friday. For the first time, a craze for horses, instead of camels, is being witnessed at the fair. Over 2,500 horses of various breeds have arrived at the fair whereas only 1,200 camels are participating.
A horse owner from Jalore has brought a white-coloured Malani breed mare which is priced at Rs 1.25 crore and has become a centre of attraction for visitors. On Sunday, many competitions were organised for animals in which winners were awarded. They will now be sold for a higher price.
