The importance abroad
Shri Shaneshwar Devasthan Shanishingnapur

Everybody in India is fully aware of the greatness of God Shani. But what is notable that is God Shani is known all the world by his devotees for his miracles and kindness. Mr. Jayesh Shah, an Indian residing in Zimbabwe is very much devoted to God Shani. And he comes from Zimbabwe to India many times only to Shanishingnapur for the 'darshan' of God Shani.

What happened was that he had a flourishing import-export business there. But he got caught in the web of time. His business was shut down, all his earnings were locked up and in the end he came to Mumbai. He saw his 'kundali' (astro-chart.) and based on the astrologer's advice, he came to Shanishingnapur to worship God Shani. He performed the prayers, 'archan' and 'abhishek' of God Shani. His situation improved slowly. And his business picked up and grew again. His position in Zimbabwe returned to him. He came here and accepted everything to God Shani and gave an ambulance of Rs. 8 lakh to the temple. He accepts that his situation improved only because of the grace of God Shani. Otherwise, deep in debt, he was preparing for suicide. Now, he frequently comes down from Zimbabwe for the 'darshan' of God Shani.

Similarr to what happened in Zimbabwe, there is another experience of Hindi cinema's actor Shri Govinda Ahuja of Switzerland. In 1996, he had gone their for shooting, and it is not known how but he had a vision. And he stopped shooting and came from Switzerland to Shanishingnapur for the 'darshan' of God Shani. And surprisingly, he had the 'darshan' and promptly went back to Switzerland. It was the grace of God Shani that brings devotees from far away abroad for 'darshan'.

Here, Central Minister Sunil Dutt came here with his son Sanjay Dutt after the release from Tada jail. Many other people like Sridevi, Amrish Puri, Randhir Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Venkatesh Prasad and Shri Narendra Modi, the Chief Minister of Gujarat have come here and benefited.
