Hindu Temples in Pakistan

Today, Muslims established 14% of India’s population, while Hindus constitute simply over 2% in Pakistan. There were approximately 300 temples in Pakistan by 1947, but most were destroyed after the collapse of the Babri Mosque in India in 1992. Numerous of the Hindu temples were unrestrained and took place of mosques, hotels or libraries. A few of the Hindu temples in Pakistan today are in a decrepit state. Even after this, the Islamic country hosts highly respected Hindu temples.

Hinglaj Mata Mandir is the most popular ‘shakti peetha’ of Goddess Sati. The cave temple is located on the banks of the Hingol River, a town on the banks of the Makran River, in the Lasbela district of Pakistan’s Balochistan province, in the middle of the Hingol National Park. Also called as ‘Hinglaj Devi’, ‘Hingula Devi’ and ‘Nani Mandir’.

2. Panchmukhi Hanuman Mandir in Karachi

3. Katas Raj Temples

Hindu people trust that Katas Raj pond was designed after Lord Shiva suppurated on the passing of Sati, his wife.
