Door-less Houses of Shani Shignapur

Shani Shignapur village

Shani Shignapur is a village located about 35 km from Ahmednagar of Maharashtra. This village is known for its popular temple of Shani, the epitome of Hindu god of the planet Saturn who is worshiped with supreme reverence and devotion. The uniqueness of this small village is that none of the houses in this village has doors or even a door frame, including the commercial buildings, schools etc for safety.

This is the best offbeat destination in India. The people here believe that it is the blessing of the god that no crime ever happens in this village. The first of its kind in the country, the United Commercial (UCO) Bank opened a ‘lock less’ branch in the village taking note of the near-zero crime rate in the region in January 2011.
