    Lord Shani at Shani Shingnapur
    I have visited to Shani Shingnapur in Jan 2023 to seek the blessings of Lord Shani. It is situated 65 kms from Shirdi. You can go by road, train or air via Shirdi. It is a Swayanbhu Shani Devsthan & thousands of devotees visit everyday to this place to seek the blessings of Lord Shani. You can get pooja Sahitya near Mandir. Also, you can get prasad & lunch. The devsthan is open from 12 AM to 12PM. This Swayanbhu Shani is in the form of Black imposing stone which has self emerged from the earth. Lord Shani showers blessings on devotees who visit Shani Shinganpur. A must for all devotees to visit at least once in his/her lifetime.

    Swaymbhu idol of Lord Shani
    This temple of Lord Shani at Shingnapur is around 75 km from Shirdi town. Many taxi drivers may approach you when you go or come from the Samadhi mandir in Shirdi. During March-23, the return taxi fare with AC was quoted at Rs. 2000/- in Swift Dezire. 3 to 3.5 hours are required for the return trip. Keep your footwares in the taxi and walk barefoot with oil from there. If you want to pour the oil directly on the idol, then you have to pay Rs. 500 at the counter near the idol. Otherwise, you may give the oil to somebody who is already in line by paying Rs. 500. Otherwise, you pour the oil into the shaft, which leads to the top of the idol. After Darshan, have Prasad from the counter.

    Shani Shingnapur
    Reached Shani Shinganpur from shirdi by shared private bus (Charged Rs 200/- both ways). Don't need of Puja Thali, most of the materials are not used inside the temple, get few flowrers, and a small bottle of Teel oil, and payment of Rs 500/- for pouring the oil directly on the idol. One can get MSRTC bus or shared taxis, autos, private buses and cabs from Shirdi at anytime. Also, one can reach Shani Shingnapur from Sambhajinagar via Ghodegaon (6 km from shani shingnapur) by MSRTC buses.

    Well managed Temple but beware of touts outside
    The temple itself is beautiful and will be worth the trip. However do not take the offerings from outside the temple. You will be forced to park your vehicle in front of shops and then force you to buy a bowl of offerings for Rs 1500 per person plus Rs 500 as pandit fees for doing some mantras and not to mention the beggars when follow you un-relentlessly. Please wise and avoid the touts and make the best of your visit to this beautiful temple.

    Beware of touts at the entrance of town
    Govt must take strict action against the touts blocking the road and selling the pooja thali 10 times more then the actual price. I was stopped and forced to buy the thali but I didn't buy. One person came and told remove the car from parking slot bcz I didn't buy anything same person earlier told me that this is free govt parking. Then he forced me to buy oil at MRP200.00. When I reached at temple parking I found same oil bottle was sold at Rs.100 and pooja thali at Rs.50.00 which they are selling at Rs.550.00. So please park ur car in temple parking slot and buy oil from stoes next to temple.

    Good place to go but commercialisation has hit everywhere so just be mindful of that
    The way to Shani Shingnapur is quite good, we drove after doing the Shirdi Darshan and checking out from hotel. It is very close to Shirdi. There will be lot of touts standing blocking the road asking you to park your car in a shade near their shops, please DO NOT STOP and par there. Keep driving and go to government parking which is in the temple compound. We did not know what all to do but being Shani mandir, we knew we have to take mustard oil. We took a basket from outside temple with all prayer things but you need to keep all of those in baskets outside the main temple, so NO POINT in buying those, just carry a bottle of oil. The main area where the oil has to be put on god has again an entry fee of 500 per person if you want to put oil directly over god else you can do so in a tank in front of the statue. Then you move out. If you go in summers, try sugarcan juice on the way, very re freshing.

Very very disappointed with the whole experience. Its a saying that in Shani signapur there are no doors in houses as there are no thieves.. but its reverse...place is full of thieves and cheaters. They first stand on the road and forcefully took my car to parking lot in front of there puja shops. Then then gave me puja samagri in a bucket and asked me to pay 4500 for each basket for me and my wife. On requesting them to reduce they threatened me of dire consequences by lord shani and i had to pay 9000 for me and my wife to come out of that shop. Please be ware of these cheaters. I will never go back to this place ever. Thanks.

Scam still continues. Few men/boys block the road so cars can’t pass and demand or divert cars to parking loots to scam people.

Why can’t city officials have organized process to reduce scam and thereby increase tourism and people feel safe to travel to the city.

We drove from Shirdi, about 70 kms..From other search engines, I read different reviews..people just pour til oil, leaving plastic containers, messing up the place. Nobody seems to know the village, as I read that there are no doors for the houses etc....there are only shops selling til oil and related items
