About Tanot Mata Temple

The Tanot Mata Temple is located in the city of Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, India. The temple is dedicated to Tanot Mata. Goddess Aavad, the daughter of Mamadji Charan (Gadhvi), is worshiped as Tanot Mata and was predecessor of Karni Mata. The temple was built by the Rajput King Tanu Rao in 828 A.D. Tanot was attacked by the Pakistan Army during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965 during which 3,000 bombs were fired towards the temple. However, as per local lore, the bombs either missed their target or did not explode. Tanot was attacked again during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971, but this time the attacking tanks got bogged down in the sand, allowing the Indian Air Force to destroy them. After the 1971 war, the Indian Army built a Vijay Stambha inside the temple compound to commemorate the victory in the Battle of Longewala.
