Karni Mata Temple-Deshnok (Bikaner)

The temple, dedicated to a 15th century incarnation of Goddess Durga, is a unique temple as it has thousands of rodents in the temple complex who are worshipped here. With this, the temple has gained popularly as the Rat Temple. The temple entrance has a beautiful marble façade to which huge silver doors were added by Maharaja Ganga Singh. It is considered highly auspicious if a rat, or the holy Kaba as it is known, runs over your feet in the temple. This unusual temple is all decked up during the holy days of Navratri when a major fair is organized here.
