If u visit shani dham then don't forgot to drink sugarcane juice thats famous because it is driven freshly out by kolhu not by machine. Shani mandir is not much crowded. The males don't need to take bath and wear that orange lungi. Now all the family ones can directly take the pooja basket and go for darshan. The shani... More

Shani Shingnapur is a divine place situated in Maharashtra. Devotees flock this place and take shani Devs Darshan; It is believed that people having Sadhe Satti or Shani Dosh do visit and seek Shani Dev's blessings. It is a place where devotees come from long distance to take blessings of Shani Dev. This diety resides in open area, i.e. No... More

We drove down from Ahmednagar a town in Maharashtra and reached at about fifteen mins to 7 pm. The road to the temple was as usual bordered by shops seeling paraphernalia related to... More

Clean temple but people are not. Beware of people who guide you wrongly. Go on your own to the temple premises. The main deity is in open air there is no way you will miss to see him. Do not pay people for no reasons.

This does not seems to be a great tourist destination - however very famous for Hindu pilgrimage offering their homage to god Shanidev. Many people visiting to Shirdi make their way out through Signapur, which is about 70 km from Shirdi via NH 160 and MH SH 66, which connects somewhere close by Rahuri. I enjoyed the route from Rahuri... More

A 80 KMS ride from Shirdhi , Sharing tempos are easily available ,they charged around Rs.100 per Head. The whole trip can be completed in 4 hours to and fro from Shirdhi. Try visiting in the night , it would be more peaceful. You can't pour oil directly on the Shani Dev's black rock , you got pour a container... More
