Karni Mata Temples in Rajasthan

Karni Mata Temple The Bikaner - Deshnok's Karni Mata Temple tour is one of the most popular tours from Bikaner, associated with the city. On an excursion from the city, one can visit a number of fascinating tourist spots and the trip to Deshnok's Karni Mata Temple is one of them.

Deshnok is actually a village 30km south of Bikaner along the Jodhpur road. A visit to Deshnok's fascinating temple of Karni Mata, an incarnation of Durga, is not far for squeamish. Here the holy rodents are considered to be incarnations of the storytellers, and run riot over the temple complex.

Karni Mata lived in the 14th century and performed many miracles during her life-time. When her youngest son Lakhan drowned Karni Mata ordered Yama the god of Death to bring him back to life. Yama replied that he was unable to do this, but that Karni Mata is an incarnation of Durga, could restore Lakhan's life. This she did, and decreed that members of her family would no longer die, but would be incarnated as kabas (rats), and these kabas would returns as members of her family. There are around 600 families in Deshnok who claim both decent from Karni Mata and that they will be reincarnated as kabas.

The Karni Mata temple is thronged not only by the Rajasthanis. Rather, devotees from all over India and even abroad pay a visit to the temple. At the time of Navaratri, a fair is held at the temple. Devotees from places far and wide flock to the temple at that time, some even on foot. Day by day, the faith in Karni Mata is increasing, attracting more and more devotees to the place. Whenever the wishes of the devotees get fulfilled, they offer silver and gold to the goddess at the temple.
