Karni mata temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to Karni mata at Deshnoke, a small town of 18 000 inhabitants (2011 census) located 30 km from Bikaner. It is also known as the temple of rats. The temple is famous for the approximately 25,000 black rats that live, and are revered, in the temple. These holy rats are called kabbas, and many people travel great distances to pay their respects. The building dates from the 15th century but was completed in its current form in the early 20th century in the Mughal Rajput style by Maharaja Ganga Singh of Bikaner. In front of the temple is a beautiful marble facade, which has solid silver doors. Source : wiki
