Hey Kitty! Rats are not worshiped there but infact its the temple of an Indian goddess. Whatever is offered to god in the form of sweets is eaten by these rats..:) But, yes its surprising that thousands of rats are living here..

India has some of the strangest temples.

The white rat is, scientifically, an albino.
