Amazing Facts
The temple of Karni mata is one of the most famous temples of India, for being called as temple of rats. Karni mata was a saint, considred to be re-incarnation of goddess Durga, with special powers. She lived during the 15th century and miraculously disappeared at the age of 151 as per the folklores sung in her praise. There are nearly 20000 rats at a time in the temple which roam freely. They are considred to be pious and reincranations of the children of the Goddess. Hence they are fed and taken care of. Surprisingly though, neither these rats wander out of the gates of the temple; nor the city population contacts any disease from these rats!!
