    Famous Hindu Temples in Pakistan

    The 160-year-old Guru Gorkhnath temple was named after a Hindu spiritual leader Guru Goraknath. After the local Hindu community diminished post partition, the temple remained silent and sans rituals until the Peshawar High Court handed over its custody to the Hindu community early 2012. — in Peshawar, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

    After the partition in 1947, Rawalpindi continued to be the general headquarters of the army. But Pindi has a lot more to tell than just it’s military tales. The city is known for its heritage and culture. Its multi-religious character changed when almost all of its Hindu and Sikh inhabitants left for India. Sixty five years after partition, I went looking for their temples and Gurudwaras.

    Ambardaran mandir, Bohar Bazaar.

    Chiniot: Hindu Mandir


    The derserted mandir stands obscure amongst clusters of houses and flows of people who do not come inside to worship the gods that it is devoted to.


    Nobodys knows much about it. The only information I read online indicates that it may be built at the order of Maharaja Gulab Singh, a powerful Keshmiri king who expanded his rule into Chiniot after the 2nd Anglo-Sikh War. It now houses a school.


    My heartful and sincere thanks goes to Maan Usman an excellent photographer, without whom my Chiniot visit would have been aborted, and Bhai Riaz, security guard of Government Institute of Commerce, Chiniot, a friend of Maan Usman, who kindly led us to all these wonderful places in a strange city Chiniot.


    So far as I know, Lahoris are good at eating and enjoying life. So here's my suggestion to all Lahoris: Go visit Chiniot; It's a wonderful place much worthy of a one-day trip!

    Sadhu Bella Mandir
    Eshwar Lal said that Baba Bankhandi Maharaj had come to this place in 1823, either from Kero Khetar near Delhi or Nepal, and had chosen Menak Parbat (the island where the temple stands) as his abode. The eighth Gaddi Nasheen of Baba Bankhandi Maharaj, Sant Harnam Das, started construction of this temple in 1889, when Baba Bankhandi died.
    According to Eshwar Lal, the temple is spread over nine acres and comprises a main place of worship (Asthan of Baba Bankhandi Maharaj), abodes for his ‘shish’ (students), a library which houses books on religion and Hindu mythology, separate ‘Bhandars’ (dining rooms) for women and men, separate places of worship for men and women, washrooms and a huge garden.
    Although the temple had withstood the floods of 1976, this year’s flood had wreaked havoc in the temple.

    Sri Varun Dev Temple
    Situated on the seashore off Manora Cantt, this Temple is about 160 years old and has been specifically designed as per Hindu architecture. The Temple was abandoned & illegally occupied by land grabbers after the 1947 partition. In 2007, Pakistan Hindu Council brought back the sanctity of the Temple by taking a bold step to renovate the same. The Station Commander, PNS Himalaya, Manora Cantt handed over the control of this Temple to Pakistan Hindu Council in June, 2007.
