    Temple of the rats?

    Has anyone heard of this place? Apparently, this is a temple in India, where the rats are considered deities. I find this fascinating, though a little unsettling. Not that there is anything wrong with the belief. I'd just be scared of disease.

    Anyone journeyed to this temple before? What was it like?

    It's the Karni Mata temple, I think, in Rajasthan. I've never been to the place myself, but know people who have. The temple has special holes and burrows for the rats to live in, and most open spaces (like courtyards) are covered with fine wire meshes to protect the rodents from predatory birds. The rats are believed to be reincarnations of the deity of the temple, who, in her lifetime as an ascetic, was known as Karni ji, belonging to the Charan clan of people. These rats are sheltered, protected from harm, given food at regular intervals, almost like a sanctuary for rats!

    Eudora13! You have given the amazing news to all. I had never heard about this before. It is very astonishing. Would you like to tell me the history of this temple? Actually I am a tourist and I have been visited many places but not this. Your post is provoking to see this place by myself.
