Shani Shignapur is about 75 kms from Shirdi, and is one of the most famous temples of Lord Shani, who is feared and revered in equal measure by people. The road leading to the temple is one lane and not too good. There is a small charge of Rs.2 levied per person upon entering the final road towards the temple,... More

Must visit place,well kept and well maintained temple. The temple is dedicated to Shani Mahatma and people with shani dosa like janma shani, astamashani and elarata shani kaata visit this temple. Temple has good aura and shani is the lord of the natives. One should visit this place to see Shani temple and also the houses with no doors and... More

Its a unique temple or site rightfully. To start with - a well known place but the road leading to the temple is quite narrow. There might be people who would ask you to park the car at the parking they will show you saying that the parking near temple is full, please domt listen as they want you to... More

I visited there in late december and the temperature was around 30 degrees celsius. One can bargain a lot to take a ride from Shirdi to shingnapur. A sedan can be booked for Rs 1500-1700 and per person (Shared travel ) will cost around 100-150 per person.

I have been to this place twice in 2 years. Last time when I visited the place it seemed quite unexplored place as cars, buses in road were very less. But this time I even saw people coming in Bike trips. Temple is nothing fancy, very simple. Not too crowdy. You have enough space to relax in the compound. Overall... More

The Shani Temple site is unique as there is no statue of Lord Shani. There is Stone monolith which is associated with Lord Shani and people pray this rock slab.The road leading to the Temple site needs to be widened as narrow road is not adequate to take the high density of traffic. The site is reasonably well administered.

The Shani Temple is going to surprise you, specially if you have just come after visitng Triambkeshwar Temple and Shirdi. Well kept temple complex, clean and very well managed facilities and surprisingly fast Darshan. The fun (pun-intended) begins the moment you enter the boundaries of Shingnapur. A toll collection guy would look at number plate of your car and then... More
