Hinglaj Mata Jayanti

Goddess Hinglaj Ma is an incarnation of Goddess Shakti and she takes her name from the mountain cave Hinglaj at on the Makran coast in the Lyari district of Balochistan in Pakistan. Hinglaj Mata Jayanti is on March 15, 2018. The popular belief is that when Lord Vishnu cut the body of Goddess Sati – to stop Shiva’s lament after Sati’s death – part of her head fell at Hinglaj or Hingula. Thus this is one among the 51 Shaktipeeths.

It is believed that Hinglaj Mata made her appearance during the 13th day of the Krishna Paksha of Chaitra Month as per traditional calendar followed in North India.

The spot is of great importance to Goddess Shakti worshipers.
