Karni Mata Temple Travel

One of the remarkable sacred spots in entire India itself, Karni Mata temple boasts of a unique tradition. Built in the late Mughal style, this temple is dedicated to Karni Mata, a ferocious incarnation of Kali. The deity is presumed to be the depiction of Mahishasura Mardhini. The temple presents exemplary artwork. Its intricately paneled walls, dexterously carved doors, arcades, pergolas and galleries proffer a rare feast to the devotees.


This holy abode of goddess Kali pay much respect to rats so that they are protected from enemies. Their holy status is due to the myth that these rodents are the incarnations of storyteller clan to which Karni Mata belonged. Special fissures in the temple premises are meant to provide easiness to their activities and they flounce about happily in the temple. It is considered lucky if one would come across with a white rodent during the Darshan in the temple
