Hingol Cultural Landscape

.

Hingol Cultural Landscape is part of the Tentative list of Pakistan in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

Hingol is an evolved cultural landscape and important Hindu pilgrimage site within the boundaries of the Hingol National Park on the Makran coast of the Arabian Sea. The Hinglaj Mata Mandar cave temple is located in a narrow gorge. Inside the shrine is only a low mud altar and a small stone worshipped as the goddess Shaktior Sati. The rituals of the shrine are closely connected to the surrounding landscape. Pilgrims take a ritual bath in the sacred Hingol River and climb the mud volcanoes in the park.
