The sacred rats of Karnimata

At the Karnimata Temple, Deshnoke in the Bikaner District of Rajasthan. March 2008.

Rats scamper carefree in the temple complex...

...for there is no shortage of the devout and...

...their offerings...

A good meal...

...can only be followed by a good nap.

... a wonder indeed.

I've heard of this temple. After looking at the pictures, I know I would love to see it sometime! Loved all the pictures, particularly the one of all the rats bending over the periphery of the vessel, sipping milk!
