The Holy Rats of Karni Mata

The Ark in Space focuses on India today. From the outside the Hindu temple of Karni Mata in the small town of Deshnoke in the Indian province of Rajasthan looks much like any other. Ornate and beautiful and with a steady stream of worshippers arriving it holds a surprise for the unsuspecting visitor. Rats! Thousands of them. Want to see some more rats not so much in the kitchen but at the temple? Click here.
