Tanot Mata Temple is located close to the Indian border with Pakistan in Jaisalmer District. The temple has an interesting history as it is believed that during the Indo-Pakistan War of 1965, the Pakistani Army dropped many bombs at the temple but none of them met the target and many of the bombs aimed at the surrounding region of the temple did not explode at all.

The temple now has a museum that exhibits collections of the unexploded bombs that were dropped by Pakistan. You are not allowed to go beyond this temple to see the Indo-Pak Border unless you have the relevant documentation from the District and Military Authorities.

It takes about two hours to reach the temple from Jaisalmer by road, which is surrounded by miles of sand dunes and sand mountains.
