  White rat
by duke0123

The Karni Mata temple in Deshnok is a very special place to visit.

This temple is fascinating because of the rats (kabas) walking around. These rats should be incarnations of storytellers. When a rat runs over your feet it's very promising for you. There are also a few white rats in this temple. When you see one of these you will be lucky for the rest of your life.

Directions: Deshnok is a city 30 km south of Bikaner and can be reached by bus, which drives every hour.

Review Helpfulness: 0.5 out of 5 stars
