ImageWe invited readers to send in their favourite travel pic -- that one photograph that perfectly captures the beauty of a place they visited. And we have been inundated with stunning pics of every corner of this beautiful country.

Here we share some of the pics we received of India's many places of worship:

First up is this photograph taken at the Karni Mata Temple, near Bikaner in Rajasthan, sent in by Dr Prakash Lalpotu. It is beleived that around 20,000 rats inhabit the temple and are seen feeding from large plates of milk, sweets and grain.

Also known as the Rat temple, it was built in reverence of Karni Mata, a mystic who is worshipped as an incarnation of the goddess Durga. The story goes that when the Mata's youngest son drowned, she asked Yama (the god of death) to bring him back to life. When he replied that he could not, she restored her son's life but in the form of the rat. From then on, it is said, she announced that her family would no longer die but instead be re-born as rats.
