Incredible India! Three interesting temples!Throughout this great country, there are many great temples which speak about the greatness of Hinduism. There are some interesting temples also. I am going to mention about three interesting temples of the country which are located at different parts of India.
1. Chinese Kali Temple, Tangra, Kolkata: In Kolkata, there is a small locality called Chinatown in Tangra (located at the eastern part of the city) which got its name because of the Chinese population. The ethnic Chinese visit the temple and offer 'prasad' like noodles, chopsuey, etc. to Goddess Kali. Most of the Chinese who live here are devotees of Goddess Kali of the temple.
2. Disappearing Temple near Vadodara: Yes, there is one such temple which disappears and then comes back to sight after a while. Around 60 kilometer from Vadodara (Gujarat), there is a Stambeshwar Mahadev Temple. The temple which stands in the Arabian Sea, can be seen only during hours of low tide, which clearly indicates that the temple remains under the Arabian Sea during high tides.
3. Karni Mata Temple, Deshnok (Rajasthan):, Rats are worshipped in this temple! The temple is located 30 kilometer south of Bikaner. Here people worship rats because it is believed that the rats are the incarnations of the Goddess Karni Mata (who is an incarnation of Goddess Durga) and her four children. Rats are allowed to roam in the temple premises and also fed with milk and other 'prasad'.
