The Temple’s Mythology
The Rajputs see her as their ‘Kuldevi’ as well. Territorial rulers and leaders of towns came to her in search of gifts to win quarrels, defeat enemies, and maintain their posts.

Laxman, Karni Mata’s stepson, drowned while attempting to drink from a lake near Kapil Sarovar, Kolayat Tehsil. Karni Mata begged Yama, the god force of death, to bring him back. Yama initially refused to agree. However, he later blessed the coming children with Laxman to be reborn as mice.

According to several surrounding ancient legends, the story of the rats at the refuge is various. According to this document, a 20,000-strong armed force fled the fighting and raced to Deshnoke. Karni Mata rescued their lives but converted them into rats after learning of their wrongdoing of departing, deserving of death, and gave the sanctuary as a future place to stay.

Karni Mata Temple is a unique sacred holy site in India (Deshnoke, Bikaner, Rajasthan). The temple is dedicated to Goddess Karni, who is seen as a manifestation of Maa Durga, the goddess of ferocity and victory. Goddess Karni is claimed to have lived in the fourteenth century and performed various strange events.
