When you go near the temple many people come around you and they say to buy pooja samagri at very high rate. Be aware of those people. I just bought oil for Lord Shani.

Going near the shrine is not allowed only pouring oil into a pumping system which pumps oil over the shrine...... More

There are a number of joints which serve sugarcane juice on the way to the temple, where the sugarcane is crushed in a machine with... More
