Karni Mata Temple in Rajahstan is not only a refuge for rodents, but also a place where they are worshiped. It was built in the early twentieth century by Maharaja Ganga Singh of Bikaner, in honor of Karni Mata. It has around 20,000 rats. Rodents are important in this temple so that if one accidentally dies its population will be replaced with a solid gold replica.
