Rat Temple – audio piece

I used short videos that I had of my mother filming. She came to visit me in India and we went to the Rat temple in Jaipur.

Please make sure that the subtitles are on because some of the audio is in Hebrew.

 

These rats are believed to be holy.¬†According to legend, the goddess Karni Mata, asked the death-god Yoma to revive the son of a grieving storyteller. ¬†First refusing, Yama eventually relented, permitting the dead son and all of Karni mata’s male children to be reincarnated as rats.
