Temple of Goddess Karni Mata. Just few kms away from Bikaner City. This temple is famous for rats. Thousands of black rat are live here and not even a single rat cross the boundary of temple.All the rats eat and drink the Parsad that is came from devotees of goddess. One more interesting thing is that all rat came together in front of Goddess at the time of Aarti. No rat hurt the devotees. you can give them Parsad with your own hands.
