The spectacular and unique Shani Shignapur Temple of Ahmednagar district is well-known for the magical and powerful Lord Shani, who is believed to reside in a black stone till date. The Hindu God symbolising the planet Saturn is referred to as Swayambhu, which means that he has emerged himself in the form of the black stone. It has absolutely no architectural beauty, and just the simple stone with the spiritual aura of the lord entices scores of devotees every year.
The trust of people in the lord is so strong that none of the houses in the wondrous village has doors and locks. People believe that Lord Shani is protecting their valuables from thieves. One is only amazed to see the level of devotion and love for the god that people have. On some of the holiest days like Saturdays, Amavasya and Shri Shaneshchar Jayanti, the enthusiasm and vehemence rise to a next level. Some Hindus worship Lord Shani to please him as the influence of planet Saturn on anyone's life is considered as bad luck.
A visit to the Shani Shignaour Temple surely gives hope that your remaining life will be smooth and that Lord Shani will bestow only happiness upon you. With no long queues and waiting period, you can easily get darshan of the divine power.

Earlier the guard used to manage the crowd greatly but now the guards are not putting any attention talking to each other otherwise the temple is good. Beware of clever shopkeepers and beggars.
