Pakistan-Based Hinglaj Mata Temple example of Hindu-Muslim unity | पाकिस्तान का हिंगलाज देवी मंदिर |

Hinglaj Mata (Balochi and Urdu: ہنگلاج ماتا‎), also known as Hinglaj Devi, Hingula Devi and Nani Mandir, is a Hindu temple in Hinglaj, a town on the Makran coast in the Lasbela district of Balochistan, Pakistan, and is the middle of the Hingol National Park. It is one of the 51 Shakti Peethas of the Hindu goddess Sati. It is one of the two Shakti Peethas in Pakistan ,other being Shivaharkaray. It is a form of Durga or Devi in a mountain cavern on the banks of the Hingol River. Over the last three decades the place has gained increasing popularity and became a unifying point of reference for Pakistan’s many Hindu communities. Hinglaj Yatra is the largest Hindu pilgrimage in Pakistan. More than 250,000 people take part in the Hinglaj Yathra during the spring.

The shrine is in a small natural cave. There is a low mud altar. There is no man-made image of the goddess. A small shapeless stone is worshiped as Hinglaj Mata. The stone is smeared with Sindoor (vermilion), which possibly gives the location its Sanskrit name Hingula, which is the root of the present-day name Hinglaj
