Royal Enfield Shrine at Om Banna Temple

Om Banna is also known as Bullet Baba. His shrine is located just off NH-65, a few kilometres from the city of Pali on the Pali-Jodhpur highway in Rajasthan. It is one of the offbeat places to visit in Jodhpur. This shrine dedicated to a motorcycle and its rider and is now a pilgrimage for every Royal Enfield rider.

The story of Om Banna goes back in 1988. Om Singh Rathore was riding his Royal Enfield in the Chotila village – Pali district, when he hit a tree, fell in a ditch and died on the spot. During investigation, the local police took his bike to the police station. But the bike appeared at the accident spot the next day under mysterious circumstances. Considering it to be a miracle or a bond between the rider and his machine, the locals made a shrine for him.
