The famous shani temple is about 75 km from Shirdi. You can reach there by sharing a ride in a tempo or booking your own taxi. I booked a taxi for Rs.1200 for a round trip. Please tell the taxi drivers not to park at any shop in Shignapur. The shop keepers will thrust pooja materials on you and tell... More

The Temple is always very crowded, now it is not allowed to touch the Shani Dev Idol, but one can offer oil to Shani Dev in the tumblers made... More

About 70 Kms South east of Shirdi on the Pune Shirdi highway, this temple is different as you can see a Black rock being worshipped as Lord Shani. Practice is to offer Til (Sesame) Oil, Til seeds and some offerrings sold in the multitude of stores enroute to the temple. Phone, camera's allowed inside but not expected to take pictures... More

I think it is one of the biggest Shanidev mandir in India. This is must place if you are visiting Shirdi from Pune. Few tips: - On the way, certain people may chase you from the bike to offer darshan. Don't stop. - At the entry, some people try to stop you for free parking, don't stop as its a... More

Went to Shani shinganapur on this year's last long weekends.. Left early morning from Shirur.. It's almost 100km journey on one side.. Road was in good condition and most importantly cars were exempted from road toll. It took two hours to reach there.. It doesn't take much time to take DARSHAN oh lord Shani deva.. Park your vehicle in trust... More
