    The cattle fair is held annually, beginning on Kartik Poornima, at Sonepur in Saran district, about 30 km from Patna.

    Spanning 500 acres near the confluence of the Ganga and Gandak rivers, the fair not only sees sale of cows, buffaloes, and oxen, but also goats, horses, donkeys, monkeys, rabbits, bears, cats and guinea pig.

    Boat rides and free elephant rides at the fair have become very popular among the visitors.
