3)Pradyumne Shrinkhala devi


Artist's imagination of Shrinkhala Devi



3) Pradyumne Shrinkhala Devi : The goddess here is called Sri Shrunkhala Devi. The temple is supposed to be in Gujarat. But I could not find it is spite of my staying there for 5 days. Some one says it is at Prabhas pattan where Somanath temple is there, The place is called Prabhas.It is 5Km from Veraval. One can go to Somanath by Somanath exp No 1464 which goes from Jabalpur to somanath via Bhopal, Ujjain, Ahmedabad and Rajkot. Prabhas pattan is 79 Km from Junagaudh. It is said that the temple was distroyed by Md Ghajani.
Some people say, the temple of Shrinkhala devi is near Kolkatta.It is said that it is in Hugli dist in a place by name Pandua.I had been to the place where the temple of Shrinkhala devi was supposed to be in the past.but at present there is such temple in that place. A minar was built there by muslim invaders. There were ruins of temple infront of minar.There is a temple of Hanseswari mata which is regarded as Shakti peetha which is very close to this place. one can visit this temple
I have seen the advertisements of many travels that they will cover 17 shakti peethas. I dont think it is possible as this temple is not there.
Body part : Devi's stomach part has fallen here.

As there is no temple of Devi in both the places one can visit Nabha Devi temple in Jammu at a place called Jindrah near Udhampur. Udhampur is 211 Km from Jammu. It is said that Devi's stomach part with navel has fallen here. As Nabhi(navel) has fallen here, the deity is called Nabha devi.
