Yes, we all know that SathiPith is the symbol of power and peace. But we do not aware that two Sathi pith is also situated in Pakistan. One is in Baluchitsan’s Hinlag and other one is situated in Karachi’s karavipur.

Pakistan’s sindh area is also famous for this Sathi pith. This is the area of Hindu Minority groups. Shivaharkaray or Karavipur is a Shakti Peeth dedicated to the Hindu Goddess Durga, located near Parkai railway station, near Karachi, Pakistan. Puranas describe that the three eyes (the third eye) of the Goddess fell here after she committed Sati. The Goddess is worshipped as Mahishasuramardini, or the slayer of the Demon Mahishasur. Her consort, the Hindu God Shiva, is worshipped in Ragi.

Sati Pith have become famous pilgrimage places as Pithas or Shakthi Pithas, and are scattered throughout the subcontinent, including in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal, and India.
