Om Banna Dham
For anyone who loves to explore things out of the box about then Om Banna Dham is the place to be at. This one is not any ordinary temple but is one of the most peculiar places to visit in Pali Rajasthan.

And what’s more enticing is that every day a horde of devotees gather to offer prayers to the bike. This motorbike is encased within a glass showcase and the shrine has a photo of an ordinary man.

Legend has it that the man (bullet baba) in the picture is Om (Singh Rathore) Banna. He rode from Bangdi to Pali’s Chotila Village and it is here where he lost control, hit a tree, and died. Later many unusual events took place where his bike placed at the police station was found missing and later was found in the same accident spot, the next day. Thus it is believed that his soul protects the people from accidents in the Pali-highway’s accident-prone area, even now.
