HISTORY:
With many efforts, the holy stone slab was taken out of the river and installed in an open air temple in the village. The presence of Lord Shani is so much pervading in the village that no thief has escaped his wrath till date. Due to this, the villagers of Singnapur never shut their homes with doors or even feel the need to put their precious belongings under lock and safe. Devotees visiting Shirdi also come to the shrine of Shani, the God of Justice to the mortals on earth, to appease him with their prayers and love offerings and ask him to forgive their sins and salvage their soul from his unsparing wrath.
The devotees hold the temple to be very important and believe that the place has got the blessings of Lord Shani. People trust the Lord so much that nobody installs doors in their houses. People believe that Lord Shani is always watching out at His devotees, and thus there is no theft or burglary in the town. Devotees throng to the temple throughout the year, and especially on Saturdays, which is regarded to be the ideal day to worship Lord Shani.
