About Shri Tanot Mata Temple, Jaisalmer
Goddess Tanot (to whom the temple is dedicated), is believed to be the reincarnation of Goddess Hinglaz. The temple itself was constructed in 847 AD and has a very unique story.
During the Indo-Pak war, the whole area was subjected to bombings from Pakistan. However, the bombs that fell in the vicinity of the temple did not explode and many of the Indian soldiers that took shelter here were unharmed.
Today the temple showcases these very bombs in its small museum. For tourists, the temple is perfect to see a rather miraculous story up close while the spiritual ambience of the whole temple along with its simple yet beautiful architecture, is loved by everyone.
