When travelling to Nasik, Shirdi this is one another addition to visit as a holy destination. Have visited 4-5 times! If travelling during summers, please take care of your feet as one has to open their footwear at some distance away from the worship place. Women are not allowed to participate in direct prayers, only possible from some distance. All... More

Peace full and self worship as no Pujaris to help or misguide people. Shopkeepers charge very high rate and to be discouraged for shopping.

This place is true indication of the powers of God Shani. It offers peace and calm. One gets the feeling of simplicity and humbleness just being there. The God himself stands under the sun without any shelter or covering to provide 'darshan' to anyone who visits this place. Then, there are houses/rooms without doors, frames - an indication of people's... More

They say to complete your spiritual visit to Shirdi, visit Shinfnapur. Believing on the words people said I travelled 80 Kms from Shirdi to visit the Shani Mandir. BEWARE: The prasad offered by the shops outside ( especially Stall No. 1 Guddu Shop) will take you for a ride if you are not vigilant for the prices he is offering... More

We have visited the place first time. I have seen a lot of shops are with out doors. But People used to cover by Tin Shade while leaving behind. The Trust is expanding the temple boundaries with a very beautiful view.

The shani idol was once just a stone under a tree but now has been developed into a good temple. The road from Shirdi is very bad in patches. Be aware of touts who will fleece you. Faith is so strong that people in the village do not have locks on their door.
