Shani Shinganapur Village Without Doors or Locks

Shani Shinganapur is a village in the Indian state of Maharashtra situated in nivasa taluka in ahmednagar district; this village is popular for its temple of Shani, the Hindu god associated with the planet (graha) Saturn. Shinganapur is 35 km from ahmednagar city. It is also famous for the fact that in the village, no house has doors, only door frames. Despite this, no theft was reported in the village.

The story of the swayambhu shanaishwara statue handed down from generations through word of mouth, like: when the shepherd touched the stone with a pointed rod and bleeding is started. Soon the whole village gathered around to watch the miracle and in night lord shanaishwara appeared in the dream of the most devoted of the shepherds.

He told the shepherd that he is “shanaishwara”. And the unique looking black stone in his swayambhu form. He prayed and asked the lord whether he should construct a temple for him. Then lord said there is no need for a roof and he preferred to be under open sky. He asked the shepherd that every Saturday to do pooja and ‘tailabhisheka’. He also promised that will have no fear of burglars or thieves.

So, lord shanaishwara can be seen even today, in the open yard and To this day there are no doors for any houses, shops, temples. It is to be seen that even post office has no door, not to speak of locks. No thievery or burglary was reported until 2010 the first theft was reported and second one in 2011. Some who have tried to steal have died vomiting blood within minutes of their act before they could cross the boundary. Many others are said have received various punishments such as long sickness, mental imbalance etc.
