Hinglaj Mata Mandir is an important Hindu pilgrimage place in Balochistan, Pakistan and Kuldevi of many Kshatriya and other Hindu Communities of India.

Hinglaj Mata Mandir is considered the most important Shakti Peeth in the 51 Shakti Peeths. At each of the Peeths, Bhairav mandir (a manifestation of Shiva) accompanies the relics. The Bhairav atmata Hinglaj is called Bhimalochana, located in Koteshwar, Kutch.


In the Ramayana, after victory over the Ravana, Lord Shri Ram came to Hinglaj to atone for his sin of 'Brahmhatya' (killing a Brahmin). Due to Ravana was a Brahmin also a great devotee of Lord Shiva and Durga. Lord Sri Ram meditated at Hinglajas it was a very important shrine.

The mantra or-incantation for Devi Hinglaj is attributed to Saint Dadhichi, an importantsaint in Hindu History.

The mantra is:

ॐ हिंगुले परमहिंगुले अमृतरूपिणि तनुशक्ति

मनः शिवे श्री हिंगुलाय नमः स्वाहा

OM HINGULE PARAM HINGULEAMRUTRUPINI TANU SHAKTI

MANAH SHIVE SHREE HINGULAINAMAH SWAHA

Translation of Mantra: "Oh Hingula Devi, she who holds nectar in herself and is power incarnate. She who is one with Lord Shiva, to her we pay our respects and makethis offering (swaha)."

Yet another incarnation:

ब्रह्मरंध्रम् हिंगुलायाम् भैरवो भीमलोचन: |

कोट्टरी सा महामाया त्रिगुणा या दिगम्बरी ||

BRAHMARANDHRAM HINGULAAYAAMBHAIRAVO VIMALOCHANAH

KOTTARI SAA MAHAAMAAYAATRIGUNAA YAA DIGAMVARI

Translation of Mantra: "Mahaa maayaa (Queen of Illusions) who represents the supreme virtue by reigning over all three virtues, has Bhimalochana as her Bhairav, and derides the worldly trappings by dancing naked, resides in this cave of Hingula that enshrines her sacred head."
