Yearly Hinglaj Mata festival ends.

Grand Hindu congregation held at yearly Hinglaj festival in Pakistan.

2601339382HENB | Karachi | April 7, 2015:: A large number of Hindu devotees travelled on Sunday towards Hinglaj mountain range, 250 kilometres west of Karachi, for the annual pilgrimage of Hinglaj Mata or Nani Mata, the Hindu Mother Goddess of Power and Prosperity, whose centuries-old temple is located in a far reached cave.

Thousands of Hindus had travelled  across Pakistan to join others from India, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Bangladesh to take part in the rituals and festivities at the temple of the Mata, also known as Hinglaj Devi.

The three-day pilgrimage held every year in the month of April  to the temple in western Baluchistan province concluded this year safely.

Legend says that to still the divine dance, Tandava, of Lord Shiva following the death of Dakshayani Parvati , Lord Vishnu scattered the remains of her embodiment over various places of the Indian subcontinent. It is said that the head fell at Hingula or Hinglaj and is thus considered the most important of the 51 Shakti Peeths. At each of the Peeths, Bhairava (a manifestation of Shiva) accompanies the relics. The Bhairava at Hinglaj is called Bhimalochana, located in Koteshwar, Kutch.

“She [Mother Hinglaj] is the yet another semblance of Kali Mata and her blessings matter [to] us [for] everything in our lives,” Jai Shriram Das, 50, leaving from Swami Narain Mandir, Karachi, told HENB. He was travelling with 25 members of his family.

The main rituals of the ceremony take place on the third day of the festivities, when the master priest chants mantras to please the Mother Goddess and pray for world peace and divinity.

This year, a bus carrying Hindu pilgrims from Tharparkar to Hinglaj had an accident, which injured at least 20 people. The incident took place at Gadani Turning on RCD Highway.

A very desolate place in the mountainous area of Lasbela district came to life from Sunday (5th April) to Tuesday (7th April) with the beginning of the three-day annual festival of Hinglaj Mata Temple. Some pilgrims reached late will stay there up to Thursday (9th April).

The Balochistan government has made elaborate arrangements to provide security to the pilgrims. Hundreds of security personnel have been deployed along the route leading to Hinglaj.

Arrangements have also been made to facilitate the pilgrims’ stay in the uninhabited area.

The Hinglaj temple is located in Hingol National Park, about 250 km from Karachi. It is one of the most ancient temples in Asia.
