Karni Mata (1387 – 1538)

was a female Hindu sage born in the Charan caste and is worshiped as the incarnation of the goddess Durga by her followers. She is an official deity of the royal family of Jodhpur and Bikaner. During her lifetime, she laid the foundation stone of two of the important forts in Rajputana. She lived an ascetic life, and most of the temples dedicated to her were dedicated during her lifetime. A temple dedicated to her during her lifetime differs from others in that it does not contain an image or idol of her but rather contains a foot-print to symbolize her visit to that place. The most famous of her temples is the temple of Deshnoke, which was created following her mysterious disappearance from her home. The temple is famous for its rats, which are treated as sacred and given protection in the temple. This temple is near to Bikaner and Nokha. Contrary to some reports, the temple is of the Hindu sect and is not affiliated with the Jainism.

camilleauteuil je vois très bien le Rat Blanc ! - il faut que je fasse regarder tes photos à Nox Le Rat et son humain privé qui s'appelle Florian, - ( sur la tête duquel j'avais mis le Cat Hat, mais tu n'es pas obligé de t'en souvenir ! ) - ils sont mignons, tes rats, ils tirent la langue pour boire !

Unchained J'en ai 13 chats, mais je peux encore apporter quelqu'uns du quartier! :))
De toute façon, j'ai déjà entendu une histoire sur ce temple et les rats sacrés. Mais il ne faut pas aller plus loin, je connais des gens ici qui ont des rats comme animaux de compagnie. :)))
Une fois qu'il s'agit ici d'une attraction touristique... je trouve la 12 mignon :)

beeacooker Oh, my! Very interesting post, but I don't think I would be brave enough to go in there with my bare feet!
beeacooker · 2012-06-04: 14:23

Nayah Ah oui, suuuuuuperr mimi Tomie!!! :)))) Mais ieeeeeeeehhhhhhhhhhhhhhh je ne pense pas que j'oserais m'y aventurer, et surtout pas nu pieds, nann!!!!! Chaque souris ou rat que je vois, c'en est un de trop...Cela dit, quand j'étais petite, je me rappelle être allée quelque part en excursion et d'avoir vu et porté un tout petit rat blanc docile...J'étais même super enthousiaste et disait à quiconque voulait l'entendre combien c'était chou...C'est quand on devient adulte qu'on se met à réfléchir et à penser aux possibles conséquences! :))))) Mais merci pour ce beau post, je suis ravie de découvrir en photo! :))) Ce que je ne comprends pas très bien par contre, c'est le rapport entre Karni Mata et les rats...
Nayah · 2012-06-04: 17:02
Nayah Au fait, j'aime toutes les photos de la série mais la dernière est très spéciale! Je te souhaite une FP avec ce post! :))))) La date est correcte?

Annbramwell It is a very good place to be a rat, you were very brave to go in there with bare feet...
Annbramwell · 2012-06-05: 04:34

beth0110 wow! what a post and that is a lot of rats. I do think they are kind of cute but still that is a lot of rats. don't think I'd like to stand barefoot around them. they'd peel me off the ceiling if one ran across my foot or up my leg!!! ahhhhh!
do you know why they are sacred??
beth0110 · 2012-06-05: 23:58
