"Go visit the Rat temple not..." India Off The Beaten Path Tip by Caroline_VD

India Off The Beaten Path: 287 reviews and 366 photos

Go visit the Rat temple not far from Bikaner!! It's a UNIQUE EXPERIENCE!! You wander barefeet through zillions of rats in a temple where they are praised and honored. If you see a white rat, that will bring you luck, because there is only one of them.
Seriously, surpass your feeling of disgust, and go there, you can be certain there will be no other tourists, the Indians will make fun of you visiting their rats, but they will feel flattered too that you actually come from so far to see them!! This is really a unique experience...
