Shahi Snan (Royal Bath) is basically a holy dip in the waters that is taken by the devotees on Kartik Purnima during the Pushkar Festival. Shahi Snan is performed in various North Indian states. This year, the Royal Bath would take place in Pushkar on the 6th of November.

Millions of devotees gather at the Saptarshi Ghat in Pushkar to perform the rituals. It is incredible to see people flocking in the waters to take a holy dip in the waters. The Royal Bath usually takes place at the end of the Pushkar Festival and the local people are quite passionate about it.
