Karni Mata Temple

Karni Mata Temple

This temple is situated 30 km from Bikaner in Rajasthan. The famous 600 year ancient temple lies on the Jodhpur road dedicated to Karni Mata, an incarnation of Goddess Durga. The temple has huge intricately carved silver gates, which were donated by Maharaja Ganga Singh. The most interesting thing about the temple is the rat that scampers freely within the sanctum sanctorum of the temple. They are regarded as sacred and are fed by priests and devotees owing to the belief that they will be reincarnated as holy men.
