Sri Karni Mata temple is a 600 years old temple at Deshnoke, Rajasthan, India. Karni Maa is an incarnation of Maa Parvati Ji. The peculiarity of this temple is that thousands of rats are worshipped here. The temple in its present form was completed in the early 20th century in late Mughal style by Maharaja Ganga Singh. This temple is dedicated to Karni Maa. There is a legend that she prophesied the victory of Rao Bika. The rats are seen as holy, owing to the belief that the souls of the followers of Karni Maa are in these rats and thus they must be looked after. The huge silver gates to the temple, and the marble carvings are a "SEWA" by Maharaja Ganga Singh. Throughout the year pilgrims from anywhere come to pay religious tribute to Karni Maa. Outside Rajasthan she is respected and loved in areas like Punjab, Gujrat, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana. During Navratri thousands come to the temple on foot. If one of the rats is killed, it must be replaced with one made of solid gold.
