Another attraction that adds a sparkling feather in the cap of Bikaner is the Mukam temple.Located at a distance of 80 kms from Bikaner city, the temple is dedicated to Guru Jambheshwarji, who is considered to be the founder of Bishnoi sect and an incarnation of Lord Mahavishnu himself. This place is believed to be his last resting place and hence the name, ‘Mukam’.The temple is adorned beautifully in white marble.The Samadhi of Guru Jambheshwarji is near the Kheri and Jaal tree, around which the Mukam temple is built. The Mukam temple is a place of great religious importance for the Bishnois. On every new moon night, devotees throng the place and it is a sight to witness. Two fairs are held every year in the temple, one in the Hindu calendar month of Ashwin,and the other in the month of Falgun.
Splendid architecture, religious serenity and an innumerable number of devotees thronging the place just to get a glimpse of their spiritual guru-that is the essence of Mukam temple.
