    Visit Saibaba Mandir

    by vpas Written Feb 10, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Sai baba Mandir/temple here attracts thousands of people all over the world. Saibaba was a saint who believed in the oneness of God. "Sabka Maalik Ek" -- was his motto. He preached about Shraddha and Saburi. He is believed to be a Hindu, brought up by a Muslim. He believed equally in both the faiths. He performed many miracles during his life time and had a huge following. He gave up his mortal form in the year 1918.
    Today there is a shrine erected in his resting place in Shirdi.

    Visit Triambakeshwar Temple

    by vpas Written Feb 10, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Considered one of the 12 Jyothirlingams of India, this is a beautiful temple which is at least 400 years old. Built by the Peshwas, it houses a sacred Lingam/ form of Lord Shiva. Be prepared to stand in long queues to enter the temple.
    There are guides who offer to take you directly into the temple. This is not totally possible. However for a sum of Rs.100/person you can by pass the long queues and go inside the temple but have to join an inner queue. This is still worth it, to save time.

    A temple dedicated to Saturn

    by vpas Written Feb 10, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Shani/saturn Temple in Shanishinganapur is one dedicated to the planet Saturn. There are no priests and no poojas performed here. One can buy some flowers, sesame oil and black sesame and offer it directly inside the temple.
    The ill effects of Saturn are believed to cause untold miseries in one's life. To ward off these ill effects people throng this temple and offer sesame oil and seeds to the deity here. It is about 70 kms from Shirdi.
    It is interesting to note that the houses in this town have no doors or locks. There are no thieves or robbery. The presiding deity is believed to be the custodian of the town and so people do not lock their houses.
