Shani Shinganapur

Shani Shinganapur is a “Jagrut devasthan” located about 70 km from Shirdi. The shrine for Shani consists of a five and a half feet high black rock on an open platform, which symbolizes the god Shani. A Trishula (trident) is along the side of the image and a Nandi (bull) image is on the south side. In front are the small images of Shiva and Hanuman. The deity here is "Swayambhu" that is self emerged from earth in form of black stone. Though no one knows the exact period, it is believed that the Swayambhu Shanishwara statue was found from times immemorial by shepherds of the then local hamlet. It is believed to be in existence at least since Kali yuga. Shingnapur is also famous for the fact that no house in the village has doors, only door frames. Despite this, no theft is reported in the village. Villagers never keep their valuables under lock and key. Villagers believe that the temple is a "jagrut devasthan", meaning that the god here is very powerful. They believe that god Shani punishes anyone attempting theft.
