We have heard a lot about shani shignapur that here the houses have no doors as no thefts take place in this place. Shani Dev take care of every house and the thief gets punished by the Lord Himself. I believe this fact...... but would like to question one thing that why do these shopkeepers loot the pilgrims on the... More

Cocounut prasadam will be given for a minimum charge of Rs.10/- very tasty and got a family picture for Rs.50/- big size. Had a... More

We reached around 1pm from shirdi. Good roads after exiting the town road from shirdi. It was Saturday and crowded. It didn't take much time for darshan. 15-30 min .The people will gather around you as soon as the car enters the area and starts guiding to their pooja material shop and parking. They will explain everything on going through... More

Holy place to visit, however few changes now, no one can go closer to the main SHILA except main Pujari. No need to wear "Dhoti" as it was mandatory previously. Don't forget to have Cane Juice on the way to Shani Shingnapur...really good in taste and different way of producing it.

The arrangements for the devotee are very fine and you can take tea, coffee, milk etc. at a very cheap rate Re.1... More
