Pakistan is an Islamic country, where there are reports of atrocities on Hindus and other minorities. The battle of religion has been going on for years. Every religion describes itself as the best. Well, today we are talking about Pakistan. The founder of Pakistan was General Muhammad Ali Jinnah. In his early days, he talked about Hindu-Muslim unity and he also played an important role in 1916 between the Congress and the Muslim League. Today in Pakistan, Jinnah is called Qaid-e-Azam and Baba-e-Qaum. In Pakistan, the youngest child is taught bitter things about Hinduism. Here young children carry guns in their hands. Just a few days ago an advertisement from Pakistan came out, in which the young children were saying that “sitting on the Red Fort we will eat cow’s kebabs, blow up the Indian Army.” With this advertisement you can understand what the children are being taught. There are some great temples in Pakistan along with people of Hinduism, but their number is decreasing day by day. Know with us some Hindu temples located in Pakistan.
Varun Dev Temple, Pakistan – There is a Varun Dev Temple in Pakistan which is said to be 1000 years old. You will be surprised to know that now this temple was being used as a toilet here. It is said that the festival of ‘Lal Sai Varun Dev’ was celebrated by the Hindu community here in the 1950s.
Panchmukhi Hanuman Temple – This temple is in the city of Karachi, Pakistan. In this temple you will see Lord Panchmukhi Hanuman. The idol of Panchmukhi Hanuman kept in this temple is thousands of years old. By the way, despite being in Pakistan, this temple is crowded with devotees from morning till evening. It is believed that 11 circumambulation of Lord Hanuman should be performed in the temple and if a vow is sought then it is definitely fulfilled. This temple is said to be several million years old. It is also said that this temple was renovated in the year 1882.
Hinglaj Temple, Balochistan: This temple is one of the 51 Shaktipeeths. Lord Vishnu is said to have thrown a circle to cut the body of Sati Maa. Due to the effect of that cycle, the head of Mata Sati was cut and dropped here. The Hinglaj Temple can be seen on the banks of the Hingol River. It is 120 km from Balochistan, Pakistan.
Katas Raj Temple, Chakwal: This temple also has its own unique story. This temple was built on the basis of the tear that fell from Mahadev’s eye. Yes, at the time when Lord Shiva’s wife Sati died, Shiva’s teardrop fell on the earth, creating a pond. Two of his tears fell and it is said that one of these tears fell in Pushkar, India and the other in Chakwal district of Pakistani Punjab. After that, and about 900 years ago, the Katasaraja Temple (Shiva Temple) was built in Chakwal where people go to visit.
Ram Mandir, Islamkot: Ram Mandir is not only in India but also in Pakistan. There is a very large Ram temple in Pakistan which is located in Islamkot. In fact, in Islamkot, Pakistan, the population of Hindus and Muslims is almost the same, due to which the temple of Shri Ram is built here. Here too people worship with reverence.
Prahladpuri Temple, Multan: This temple is the Narasimha form of Lord Shri Hari Vishnu. It is located in a city called Multan in Punjab, Pakistan. The temple is said to have been built by Prahlada, son of the great demon king Hiranyakashipu. Prahlada was born in the Rakshasa dynasty but was a devotee of Lord Vishnu since childhood. At the same time, people of the demon dynasty considered Shri Hari Vishnu as their enemy. At that time, Lord Sri Hari Vishnu slaughtered Hiranyakashipu as Narasimha at the fort of Multanpur in Punjab, Pakistan. Now when Holi is celebrated, this temple is worshiped with great pomp and everyone plays Holi.
There are many Hindu temples in Pakistan but now all lose their place. The importance of Hindu temples is slowly disappearing here. In India, there are many types of religions Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, and the same with Pakistan, but neither do they follow our Hindu temples, nor do they value them as Indians do.
Once there were 428 temples, but now only 20 – There was a time in Pakistan when there were 428 Hindu temples but now only 20 temples are left. We have told you about some of them above. You will also remember an incident in Pakistan recently. Indeed, here in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, a mob led by members of a radical Islamic party ransacked a Hindu temple. The temple was located at Teri village in Karak district. The fire was set here after the demolition. This shows that it will not take long to finish Hindu temples in Pakistan. Gradually all the temples will be demolished. You would not know that there was a Hindu temple in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, but a community center was demolished from there. Another temple was located in Pakistan which was known as Kali Bari. This temple was also demolished and replaced by Taj Mahal Hot
