6 Most Unusual Temples in India

While a rather “Chinese” offering as prasad, submerged temples, a gurudwara for airplanes and a parikrma for visas may not feature on your ordinary religious circuit, There are more than one reasons why you should visit these queer instances of religion anyway. We pick out the queerest for you.

# Kala Bhairav Temple, Varanasi

There are one too many temples in Varanasi to keep you on your toes but only a few that’d catch you by surprise. One such instance might be when you catch the main deity sipping on to the wine you just offered it. That’s just a regular day at Kala Bhairav temple, where not only is wine offered as prasad but the idol is also believed to gulp down some occasionally.

# Shiva Temple, Varanasi

It’s only fair that the spiritual capital of India has its own share of strange temples. This one has quite a spot by the Ganges, and occasionally in the Ganges. Though the temple remains abandoned, it makes quite the scenery.

# Karni Mata Temple, Bikaner

One of the most popular temples in Bikaner, this one has been flabbergasting the pest control for a while now. With rats all over the temple, the prasad and everywhere else, the Karni Mata temple has more than one legends to explain. Folklore has it that when an army of about 20,000, left the battle and came to Karni Mata, she though spared them life in spite of the sin of desertion, turned them into rats and let them have the temple as their place to stay.

Having leftovers by rats as prasad is considered lucky and in case a rat is killed, the same must be replaced by a gold one.

# Chinese Kali Temple, Kolkata

When Ladoos and Halwa seem to mainstream for prasad, it’s probably your calling to Chinese Kali temple in Kolkata where noodles, chopsuey, rice etc are the way to have your wishes granted.

# Ravana Temple, Ravangram, Vidisha, MP

It’s not everywhere in India where Ravana is set to flames each year on Dussera. In a certain village in Madhya Pradesh, there is quite a debate. Villagers here worship Ravana, seek his blessings for religious and auspicious ceremonies and pray and respect him for the great warrior and learned man that they believe him to be.

# Visa Balaji Temple, Hyderabad

God does seem to reside in everyday, mundane and trivial things. One such thing is a US Visa. If you are having trouble getting pass the Visa Office, it’s probably because you haven’t done your bit at the Visa Temple yet. This one is known to have granted countless US visa wishes and continues to be a shining ray of hope for many others.
