Devine Journey Jaisalmer to Tanot Mata
Tannot Mata is a temple in western State of Rajasthan in District Jaisalmer of India. The story of Tanot Temple at the Longewala border in Rajasthan is one such magical tale when the local deity Tanot aka Awad Mata didn't let any Pakistani tank bomb explode and Indian soldiers who were certain of martydom and defeat went on to crush the Pakistanis in both 1965 as well as 1971 wars. Bhati Rajput King Tanu Rao made Tanot as their capital. In AC 847 foundation of Goddess Tanot was kept and idol was installed.
It takes about two hours to reach the temple from Jaisalmer by road, which is surrounded by miles of sand dunes and sand mountains. Tanot is not a typical tourist destination, not even known by many tourists. It is a true eccentric destination to cherish a lifetime memory. The place is one of the best places to explore in the Thar Desert in Rajasthan. This temple was shown in the movie Border.
