Tanot Mata Temple in Rajasthan – Bombs of Indo-Pak War Did Not Explode in the Tanot Mata Mandir

Tanot Mata Temple, on India – Pakistan border – is one among the 51 Shaktipeetahs and it is located around 120 km from Jaisalmer in Rajasthan. The temple is closely associated with the Hinglaj Mata Mandir located in Pakistan, which is also a Shaktipeetah. It is said that the bombs dropped by Pakistan during Indo-Pak on the temple premises did not explode.

It is believed that a family in the region did not have any children. The members of the family used to visit Hinglaj Mata Mandir regularly and pray to beget children. Please with the devotion of the family, Mata herself was born in the family. They then came to reside at Tanot in Rajasthan.

Tanot Mata is a Miracle Temple
It is said that during the Indo-Pak war of 1965, hundreds of bombs were thrown at the temple and in the temple premises by Pakistani soldiers. Miraculously none of the bomb exploded.  The unexploded bombs are kept for display in the temple.

It is also believed that during the Indo-Pak war of 1975, Pakistani military tanks got marooned in the desert sand due to the blessing of Tanot Mata.

The temple is maintained by the Border Security Force (BSF).
