Miraculous Mata Tanot Temple

The visit to the Tanot Mata Temple was very divine. During the India- Pak war, Pakistan dropped several bombs on the temple, some of them didn't fall on the temple while the rest in the vicinity of the temple didn't explode. This miracle saved the lives of many soldiers who were taking shelter near/in the Temple. Since, then the BSF is maintain the temple. The bombs are displayed in the museum of the temple.The temple is situated near the Indo-Pak border which is about 5kms from there. You cannot go beyond the temple without prior permissions and documents from the military authorities. Also, if you have permission then go before 5, as after that you will not allow to go ahead.The ride to the temple is very smooth and is around 120kms from Jaisalmer. And due to the complete military area, it is a no network zone. There are no restaurants or tea stalls on the way to the temple so take food along with you.

Must go

If you are at Jaisalmer must go to Tanot Mata Temple, approx 100 km from Jaisalmer fully maintained by BSF. If you want to go to India Pakistan border you need to take permission prior.

Very devotional place

Must visit if you are towards the spiritual side. Go and make a wish and it will come true, for me it worked. Really I visited it twice. Must see the aarti sung by BSF jawans.

An amazing feeling

The famous 'Border' movie temple. You get an amazing feeling visiting this place not just for the temple but because of the history attached! The place is managed by army and they have done a wonderful job in maintaining the place. It's only 20kms from India Pak border and a must visit.PS - The road to this place from Jaisalmer is just truly awesome (around 120kms).

Nice temple

Nice temple. Can be visited after visiting longewala battleground. The temple kept the original shellings from Pakistani tanks from 1971 war. The temple remained intact. The place is very near to border. Even your car antenna can easily catch Pakistani FM channels.

Nice temple along the Border

Nice temple along the Border. It's believed that how many bombs and mortars had fallen alongside this temple but none had blown away. This temple also highlights the Indian unity by seeing the majaa insider a temple premises. The evening aarti was one of the best I ever attended. Nicely sung by BSF soldiers in unity and with patriotism it made me realise that patriotism is the main religion of mankind.

A good place to go

Tanot is a very good place to go, if you are going there you have to know about the history of temple. The temple is governed through BSF as it is very near to border.

If you fear mice, visit this place

This place is one of the best ones I ever visit. This temple has about 5000+ mice running everywhere. I'm scared of mice and I had an adventurous time visiting this temple as you see mice running everywhere.One climbed on my hand and I was scared like hell but when I was returning out of the temple, I saw two mice running and I was able to walk between them without any fear. Chuhe wali mata took all my fear:) Amazing experience. 100% worth visiting for an unique experience.

Nice Place to visit

Visit to this Tanot temple was a great pleasure was happy to see some BSF soldiers over there. We can do a ride to India Pak border from there if permission letter is there. So its a nice place to see over the sands.
