The Sonepur Fair in Bihar, India takes place annually on the holy river Ganges. The cattle fair, held in the Indian state of Bihar, has its origins during ancient times, when people traded elephants and horses across the Ganges. The mela used to attract traders from places as distant as Central Asia. It is one of Asia's largest cattle fairs and lasts for a fortnight.
