About Tanot Mata Temple

If you have seen the Bollywood Blockbuster 'Border', you won't fail to recognize Tanot Mata Temple that appears quite often in the movie. Despite heavy shelling at the Indo-Pak border during 1971 war, this temple remained unharmed. Dedicated to goddess Hinglaz, this revered place is maintained and worshipped by the army. This religious attraction is about 120 Km away from the golden city of Jaisalmer. It takes you about 2 hours to reach here by Taxi. The road passes through the desert area where no market, food stall or mobile network is functional. En route, you spot Indira Canal, which is the miraculous lifeline of Thar desert. The peaceful surroundings of this temple and the spectacles around make it worth a visit. You cannot go beyond the temple without permission from DM of Jaisalmer as the area comes under the Border zone.
