  • Good temple...In the heart of the jungle, 25 km from Sasan Gir, there is a shrine to Kankai Mata, the benefactor of the shepherds of Gir forest.  A supremely wild place, here you can hear lions roar at night and animals gathering at the nearby lake. The Forest Department allows devotees; no more than 50 at a time for the night stay.
  • Beautiful mandir in the remote area of the Jungle. Lots of peacocks there. Its amazing. Mandir is well maintained. Such a quiet and peaceful place.
  • Temple situated in the middle of forest...if u love to see forest then u must visit this place
  • Kankai Mata is kuldevi of Unival Brahmin and Baniya. This temple is situated in center of Gir National Park, so permission is must from forest department. Night holt is not allowed as per rule of Forest department. Must visit place for pilgrims and nature lover.
  • Temple in itself is usual.. but the way by which you will reach there is just awesome... From Satadhar to Kankai road is very nice... There will be core jungle area where you will find only 7-8 ft broad road... Very nice experience you will have if you are planing Kankai Mata temple visit...
