Photographer's Note

We visited Karnimata - the temple of the holy rats.
They also call it the 8.th wonder of world.

THE KABA (RAT) LEGEND.

ACCORDING TO THE FOLKLORE,SHRI KARNI-MATA ONCE RESTORED A DEAD CHILD OF HER DEVOTEE BACK TO LIFE FROM YAMA. (THE GOD OF DEATH) THEN MATA ANNOUNCED THAT NO ONE FROM HER TRIBE WOULD FALL INTO YAMA'S HAND AGAIN. INSTEAD, WHEN THEY DIED ALL OF THEM WOULD TEMPARARILY INHABIT THE BODY OF A RAT (KABA), BEFORE BEING REBORN INTO THE TRIBE
