Chapter 21: Rat Temple!

Oh my god, guys, I just found something cool today! A temple for rats!!! 

The Temple's name is Karni Mata, and it's situated in Deshnoke, India. It was built for Hindu goddess Karni Mata, but nowadays it's famous for its rats that people consider sacred. Out of all of the thousands of rats in the temple, there are said to be four or five white rats, which are considered to be especially holy. They are believed to be the manifestations of Karni Mata herself and her four sons. Seeing them is a special blessing and visitors put in extensive efforts to bring them forth, offering prasad, a sweet holy food.

hahaha, the rats aren't so clean and most of them are in a very bad shape 'cos of the possible fights or 'cos they're old :< It wouldn't be wise to touch them, but I know I would be jumping to the rat sea and pet them until they feel dizzy! ...and return home carrying 54163071 diseases XD

I'm my opinion it's awesome that there is a complete temple for rats! I would never want to go to India, but this is a place that I really would like to visit, even though the smell must be awful XD nah, who cares! RATS <3

Family dinner? :D
