  DESHNOK - KARNIMATA TEMPLE

Beliefs and traditions are so fantastic and awe-some that they elude the grasp of rationality and lab experiment. Some of them do appear so queer that the sceptics sneer at their very mention, and start deriding with tirade of infinite variety. Alas! they are oblivious of the fact that such beliefs alone are cementing the faith of the adorers in the omnipotent God and the solace they obtain is indescribable. And lo! such sons of the soil are forming the majority and their infinite numerical strength cannot be clothed even in astronomical language Belief alone gives relief and ensures bliss.

Among such quixotic beliefs, the worship of Karni Nata 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 this white marble temple is breath taking. Its sculptured beautification detains devotees long. The temple's and the archamurti wall panels too display exquisite crafts-manship. The bounty of the royalty strikes the eye from the paraphernalia used for regular worship The Mother gives darsan in standing posture, holding Trisul in the right hand and severed head in the other. The walls of the sanctum are carved with the figures of the rats.
