Kankai Temple Safari Booking
Are you ready to hear holy chants amidst the lion roars? Getting goosebumps already? The same is possible once you opt for the Kankai Safari within the Gir National Park in Gujarat.
In the middle of the sanctuary, near about 25 km from the Sasan Gir, lies the Kankai Mata shrine. The temple belongs to Shri Kankeshwari Mataji or Shri Kankai Mataji. The goddess here is considered as the savior of the shepherds roaming about in the Gir forest. The Kankai Mata temple inside the Gir National Park is the wildest place indeed as you can hear the lion roaring from inside the temple. There is a lake nearby which is the gathering spot of numerous wild animals.
The devotee who wants to stay here in the night requires a special permit from the forest department officials. The Gir Park Forest Department allows only 50 devotees at a time for the night stay. Normal visitors too, need to have a proper permit to avail the Kankai Safari and to enter the holy temple.
