Om Banna Dham This is the famous temple of Bullet Baba located about 40 kilometres from the city of Jodhpur. The temple was originally named as Om Banna, who was this good Samaritan who had been killed in a road accident in the year 1988. He used to own a 350cc Royal Enfield Bullet motorcycle which was taken away by the policemen to the police station after the unfortunate incident took place. However, to everyone’s utter amazement, the motorcycle which had been parked at the police station was found at the accident site again the following day. The police took it away once again the following day only to find it parked at its rightful spot which was the accident site.
Finally, they had realised that it was the will of Om Banna’s spirit to park the bike at the accident site, and this was not a human prank. Soon after, a temple was erected at this accident site in honour of Om Banna who soon came to be known as Bullet Baba for his worshipers. Whoever, passes through this highway, makes it a point to stop and offer his prayers to the shrine of Bullet Baba.
