Laungewala Battlefield reminds us of Indo-Pak war of 1971.The battle began on the night of December 4, 1971, when a Pakistani armored regiment, supported by infantry, attacked the Indian border outpost at Longewala. The Indian outpost, commanded by Major Kuldip Singh Chandpuri, consisted of only 120 soldiers and a few outdated tanks.
The Pakistani army launched several artillery attacks on the temple, aiming to destroy it. However, to the astonishment of many, the bombs and shells did not harm the temple or its surroundings. It is believed that the divine presence of Goddess Tanot protected the temple and prevented any damage.
