Situated 120km North West of Jaisalmer city is Tanot in Thar Desert of Rajasthan. You will find sand dumes all along with small bushes. You can see herds of sheep & goats on the way. Beautiful landscape. Total desert. Nice to see Indira Gandhi Canal full of water after Ramgarh. You can see vegetation & farms near the canal. It is very near to Pakistan border. Last civilian point in India on border. Tanot Rai Mata Temple is an old temple with a history of India Pakistan war of 1965. Hundreds of shells fallen here did not harm the temple. Some bombs are in display at temple. Maintained & managed by Border Security Force of India. Keep food & water with you. Very few population.

Tanot Temple is a History in itself and one gets a feeling of serenity and calm being there; with no hustle bustle of temple fervour. The 'Pujari' (Priest) goes about his routine in a proper fashion and they say one can tie a kerchief with...More

Wonderful experience in visiting the Tanot mata temple. The weather is good in winters and the roads are good. The surrounding area of the temple has large sand dunes. The temple is well maintained.

Its a 100 kms plus journey. Better hire a full time cab from Jaisalmer and return via Longewala war memorial. Depending on the condition cab will take 2 to 3K. But its worth.
