‘Tanot Mata Mandir’ is the temple of Goddess Hinglaz in district Balmer near Jaisalmer, Rajasthan. This temple is under the Border Security Force (BSF) due to security reasons. We are also called the ‘Temple of Miracles’ because it is said that Goddess Hinglaz defended India’s soldiers from bombs in such a great way during the India Pakistan war of 1965 and 1971. The temple’s surroundings are very peaceful, yet it is in the Thar Desert, a hot region. Tourists are not allowed to go beyond the temple unless one gets the proper documentation from the higher authorities.
