Goddess Hinglaj Mata is an incarnation of Goddess Shakti and is one among the 51 Shaktipeeths. The head of Goddess Sati is worshipped here. The deity takes her name from the mountain cave Hinglaj on the Makran coast in the Lyari District of Balochistan in Pakistan. Dawn Newspaper has created a image gallery of the Hinglaj Mata Temple and famous Mud Volcano.

Legend has it that when Lord Vishnu cut the body of Goddess Sati to stop Shiva’s lament after Sati’s death which was unsettling the universe; part of her head fell at Hinglaj or Hingula. (You can read the legend here in this article.)
