Shani Shinganapur

Shani Shinganapur:

Shignapur is situated at a distance of 6 kms from Ghodegaon on Aurangabad-Ahmednagar highway. The distance from Aurangabad is 84 kms and from Ahmednagar it is 35 kms. From Ghodegaon, there is a motorable tar road up to the idol of Shri Shaneshwar and is open in all the seasons. The population of this village is about 3000. There are no regular buses but on pilgrimage days there are special transport buses plying to Shignapur.

The presiding deity of Shinganapur, Sri Shaneshwara or Shanidev- the personification of the planet Saturn is worshipped with utmost reverence and devotion by multitudes of people from all over the world. The spectacle of the deity in black stone is overwhelming. A unique aspect of this place is, that no temple structure houses the Shanidev. There is only a simple platform on which stands the swayambhu idol, in black stone.

After Visiting Shirdi you can visit Shani Shinganapur, Shree Saptshrungi Devi, Vani,Kalaram Mandir  etc.
All facilities are available in these places.
Before leaving the caves ,fort or jungle don't leave anything except your footprints...
Keep INDIA Clean and Incredible

Looking forward for your reply
