Also known as Singnapur or Sonai is a village in the Ahmednagar District of Indian state Maharastra. The village is known for its popular temple of Shani, the Hindu God of the planet (Graha) Saturn. It lies at a distance of 35 kms 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 is reported in the village. Villagers never keep their valuables under lock and key. Villagers believe that the temple is a “jagrut devasthan” (lit. “Alive temple”), meaning that the god here is very powerful. They believe that god Shani punishes anyone attempting theft. 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.
The daily visitor range from meager 35 to lakh of devotees on Amavashya (the new moon day) believed to be most auspicious day to please Lord Shani. A bigger festival is held on new moon days that fall on Saturdays. 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. Other festivals include the birthday of Shani, Shani Jayanti.
