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.

The temple is located about 150 kms from Jaisalmer, close to Longewala. It is maintained by the border security force and contains a collection of bombs that were dropped by Pak forces.

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.
