  • The temple is interesting. Some guides (books) tread very hand suggesting that the visit is an undertaking. Obviously if you have horror of mice better not enter. The temple has a first area (courtyard) where there are some rats who are essentially their affairs; someone runs and can be cha crosses the line of people who want to get on the inside. This part is a bit more challenging because the spaces are tight; but again the mice primarily involved in eating what the faithful bring. With some attention both me and my daughter we got into contact with any pet. You can use disposable plastic overshoes shoes (those from hospital) before taking off his shoes and put them on the socks. Highly recommended.

  • Jai Maa Karni. Holy Rat Temple in Deshnoke, Bikaner. Get here and amaze yourself with the ambiance, architecture and faith amoung people. Try and look out to pick out a White Mice which is considered most sacred and reincarnation of the Goddess. Also visit the Nehdiji temple nearby.. Suggestions ~ Don't walk but slide your feet on the floor to avoid hurting the holy rats of the temple and getting scared yourself. Jai Maa Karni..

Stone carving on the temple entrance and inside the temple is magnificent. Temple is 30 kilometer form Bikaner City. One must visit this temple on the festival of navratri.
  • Karni Mata Mandir deshnok is very famous Mandir of Bikaner Rajasthan. It is 30km south from Bikaner on Bikaner nokha road before 30 km from nokha(middle).
