This famous shrine, which gained nation-wide renown during the India-Pakistan war of 1971, is a must-visit site in Jaisalmer. Dedicated to Tanot Mata, believed to be an avatar of Hinglaj Mata, the temple lies in close proximity to the Longewala border between the two countries. Legend has it that during the battle when thousands of bombs were being shelled, no bomb that fell near the temple diffused, thus protecting the locals and soldiers. Tourists can also visit the adjoining museum, which houses artefacts from the time of war. The temple is maintained by the Border Security Force of India. The area also boasts rows of windmills that add to the quaintness of the area. The temple lies about 150 km from Jaisalmer.
