About the Temple: Shani Shingnapur situated in Nevasa taluka in Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra, the village is known for its popular temple of Shani, the Hindu god associated with the planet (graha) Saturn. Shingnapur is 35 km from Ahmednagar city. Shingnapur is also famous for the fact that no house in the village has doors, only door frames. Despite this, no theft was reported in the village until 2010. Villagers believe that god Shani punishes anyone attempting theft. The temple is believed to be a "jagrut devasthan", meaning that a deity still resides in the temple icon. The deity here is "Swayambhu" that is self emerged from earth in form of black, imposing stone. The Swayambhu Shanaishwara statue here was found by shepherds of the then local hamlet. It is believed to be in existence at least since the start of Kaliyuga. The shrine for Shani consists of a five and a half feet high black rock installed on an open-air platform, which symbolizes the god Shani.
A Trishula (trident) is placed 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. 30,000 to 45,000 devotees visit the temple each day which increases to about 3 lakh on amavassya believed to be the most auspicious day to encharm Shani. The village holds a fair in honor of the deity on this day. Devotees bathe Lord Shani's image with water and oil and offer flowers, and udid to him. A palanquin procession of Shani is held on the day of the fair. The story of this Swayambhu temple goes like this :When the Shepherd touched the stone with a pointed rod, the stone started bleeding. On that night Lord Shanishwara appeared in the dream of the most devoted of the shepherds. He told the shepherd that the unique looking black stone is his swayambhu form. The shepherd prayed and asked the lord whether he should construct a temple for him. To this, Lord Shani Mahatma said there is no need for a roof as the whole sky is his roof and he preferred to be under open sky. He asked the shephered to do daily pooja and 'Tailabhisheka' every Saturday without fail. He also promised the whole hamlet will have no fear of dacoits or burglars or thieves.
