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

It is a good religious place facilities are ok. It is good to visit if you are visiting Aurangabad or Shirdi. Saturdays are diificult to get the darshan as there is too much crowd on Saturdays.

The story of the swayambhu statue handed down from generations through word of mouth, goes something like this: When the Shepherd touched the stone with a pointed rod, the stone started bleeding. The shepherds... More

Shani Shignapur is a very nice place.I have visited this place twice.The village is very peaceful.The shrine consists of a high black rock installed on an open-air platform which symbolizes the God Shani.Devotees offer sesame oil.Must see this place if you are visiting Shirdi.Be careful while walking inside the temple.The floor is a bit oily.
