No need to carry these clothes with you as they are available on returnable basis in the shops. Ladies are not allowed to climb upto platform but they can enter the complex and can stand at a distance from the platform. Cameras are allowed inside the complex but taking photos of main platform is not permitted. One of the official has informed us that keeping the photo of the Shani is not good for devotees so advised us not to focus our camera towards the statue.

The village have no doors as people believe that Shani dev will save them from thefts and miscreants will be punished immediately by Shani dev.

There is no statue and Black stone pillar is worshiped with deep respect and traditions.
