Tanot Mata

The Tanot Mata Temple is considered by some to be the most important tourist attraction in the Thar Desert. Situated in Tanot village in Jaisalmer district, it is considered to have great historical value. India's Border Security Force (BSF) has preserved and protected the heritage site since the Indo-Pak war of 1971. Some places hold so much of elegance, but they are rarely visited due to the locations in which they are housed. It is believed that she is an apparition of Hinglaj Mata. It is a hidden gem in Jaisalmer, a district in Rajasthan close to the Pakistani border, where the Tanot Mata temple is located.
