in one temple, they are held in high esteem, rather being passed for the objects
of worship. Ironical it appears they neither harm anyone nor carry away the
edibles and pooja materials brought by devotees. Their images adorn the temple
walls, and visitors raise their hands at their sight. Their scampering and
squeaking in side the garbhagriha is not treated as nuisance, but allowed it
with full gratification. All because of a bizarre belief. For what and where
many quixotic beliefs the worship of Karni Mata at Deshnok tops the list. She is
the household deity of Rathors- the royal family of Bikaner and they endowed the
temple with costly things such as massive silver gates worth millions. They are
intricately carved and elegantly designed by the experts. The facade of thus
white marble temple is breath taking that its sculptured beautification detains
devotees long. The temple's wall panels too display exquisite crafts-manship.
The bounty of the royalty strike the
- eye from the Paraphernalia used for regular worship.
