  • Well in COVID time The Temple is closed for pilgrims , so You can see temple from out side only. Very calm and quite place because no body is there . Only few shops are open and only 10-20 pilgrims.....  more »

  • Very pious temple. The belief is , when one visits this temple, if one prays strongly & sincerely, Devi Karni Mata fulfills all your wishes. Also known as Rat Temple, there are hundreds of rats inside the temple which move around without troubling. The belief is, these rats are from lineage of Devi and they live inside the temple. You will not see even a single rat outside the temple. It's just mesmerizing. One of my favourite temple to visit in a week...you will afraid of the rates at the first bit later you'll get familiar with them...there are uncountable rates you will find out. Foreigners and tourists specially come this place to visit it out You will definitely love this place...if possible then come in winter season Heritage place...... Awesome view.... Best place.... Have historical stories about here... And awesome facts and views of kabba (rats of this temple). Can be seen here....
  • Unique temple also called temple of rats. You can see a large number of rats in side temple. People says there are 25000 lives inside temple. Most of them are black but some white rat can also be seen. Its a quite place and wonderful experience to visit
