    Tannot Mata is a temple in western State of Rajasthan in Jaisalmer District of India. As per the ancient literature Tannot Mata is new clone of divine goddess Hinglaj Mata, and after than Tannot Mata becomes Karni Mata.

    Basically this temple is close to the border with Pakistan and is very close to the battle site of Longewala of Indo-Pakistan Border  unless one gets the relevant documentation in advance from the District and Military Authorities.

    It is said that during the Indo-Pakistan War of  1965, Pakistan Army dropped over 3000 bombs targeting the temple but not even one exploded!!!

    After the war the Pakistani General actually asked his counterpart in India about this incident and on knowing the story of the power of the temple that apparently protected the area he asked to see this place.

    This request was granted and the Pakistani General actually went to the temple and paid his respects and acknowledged the supernatural happening.

    After the War the temple management was handed over to Border Security Force of India  on their request and to date the temple is maintained and manned by the BSF soldiers. Unexploded bombs that were shot by Pakistani tanks are still present in the museum of the temple.

    In 1971 again when Pakistan and India went to war this area was again targeted by the Pakistani Tanks for 4 days but again all the tanks were stuck in the sand and the Indian Air Force picked them out easily by bombing them where they stood as they were unable to move even one inch.

    Over 200 Pakistani tank troops were killed here and the majority actually left their stuck tanks and ran for their lives. This Temple has protected the area that is only 10 km from the border outpost and the faith is such that the army and BSF soldiers still stop at this temple and apply the sand on their foreheads and also to their vehicles which keeps them safe and their journey fruitful.

    Since 1965 every enemy soldier who dared to attack this area was killed. The Population of Tanot Village is 492 Person having 49 Household .

    This temple is now very well developed as a tourist place and also it was shown in the Border movie.
