The temple of Shani Shignapur is situated in Nevasa taluka in Ahmednagar district, the village is, known for the Hindu god associated with the planet (graha) Saturn.
The shrine for Shani consists of a five and a half feet high black rock installed on an open-air platform, which represents 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
The temple on a day to day count has 30–45,000 visitors a day, which estimates to around three lakh (i.e. three hundred thousand) on Amavasya (the no moon day), believed to be the most auspicious day to appease Shani. A fair is held in honour of the deity on this day. A larger festival is held on new moon days that fall on Saturdays. Devotees celebrate this with much fervor and zeal to impress the god. They bathe Lord Shani\'s image with water and oil and offer flowers. A palanquin procession of Shani is held on the day of the fair. Other festivals include the birthday of Shani, Shani Jayanti.
Women were restricted entry to the inner sanctrum. On 26th january 2016, a group of over 500 women, led by activist Trupti Desai, marched to the temple under the group "Bhumata Ranragani Brigade", demanding entry into the Inner sanctum. This 400 year long tradition in Maharashtra was challeneged and broke by a group of women who entered the temple premises.
This is yet another historic step in the crusade against the ban on women from entering temples. We laud the courage of these women,said Trupti Desai, leader of the Ranragini Bhumata Brigade, who was at the forefront of the Shani Shingnapur campaign for many months.
