We were a group of 9 people and we hired one Chevrolet Tavera to visit this temple from Shirdi. The road leading to this temple is very bad from Shirdi and we were very uncomfortable traveling in travera. A comparatively tempo traveler would be good. Once you reach the bus stop, the shop keepers will tell you all sorts of... More

This place is not too far from shirdi. A unique holly place of Lord Shanideva. There are no doors on any house or hotel or shops. Its is amusing that there are no one can steel anything if somebody do this he will course by Lord Shani. Shanidev himself gives punishment to thrives. Jai jai shanidev.

One good thing about this place is that it is never closed and you can visit any time of the day. We visited this place at night around 11:00 PM. The drive from Shirdi to this place is far with bad roads and sometimes single lane. Eventually we reached deep inside a place where this mandir is located. As we... More

Shani Shingnapur is very close to Shirdi (70km). The shani dev rock is located in the open. Earlier devotees were allowed to touch the rock and offer oil. But since few years the temple management has stopped the practice. Now the oil is offered in a tank from where it is pumped on to the god. The arranegment is very... More

Esoteric and awe inspiring. Not far from shirdi (70 Km) and easy to reach on a cab. This place is clean and well managed but the faith here is raw and core. Shani the judging and god, is spread in all his glory! Must go from Shirdi. Worth the experience !
