The presiding deity of Shinganapur, Sri Shaneshwara or Lord 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.
Unlike other pilgrimage centres, devotees here can perform puja or abhishek or other religious rituals themselves.
One of the unique aspects of the village Shiganapur is that houses here have no door- frames or locks on them for safety. They are in fact not needed. The people here believe that it is the benediction of the god that no crime ever occurs in this village.
Shri Dattatraya Temple and the tomb of Sant Shri Udasi Baba are the nearby attractions.
By road, Shani Shignapur is linked with Aurangabad (68 km) and Shirdi (70 km). Ahmednagar Railway Station is the nearest railhead
According to legend, Lord Shiva's consort Sati once burnt herself alive in Yagna to avenge an insult to Lord Shiva. The distraught Shiva picked her corpse and gyrated his horrified dance.
Then Lord Vishnu unleashed his Chakra and cut the Sati's body into fifty one pieces to save theearth from Shiva's wrath.All the fifty one places -where parts of Sati's body fell, became known as Shakti PeethsIt is believed that Sati's eyes fell at the place where this temple is situated. Therefore, this temple is called Naina Devi.The word Naina is synonymous with Sati's eyes.Since then, devotees started visiting this temple.
