Shirdi/Shani Shingnapur Weekend

Had been around three weeks since moved to the West Coast of India. My room mate (Sai) told me that the best place to visit around is a day’s tour to the following places:

  1. Shirdi
  2. Shani Shingnapur and
  3. Ranjangaon Mahaganapathy

I hence booked a ticket with Purple Prasanna travels and the bus started on Friday night from near Pimprigaon. It reached Shirdi the next day early morning 3.30 AM at Hotel Vatsala. After a quick freshing up we headed over to Shirdi Saibaba temple for the 4 AM Arathi. It was packed with crowd and after completing the Arathi darshan started back to the pickup point. Our next trip to Shani Shingnapur started at 8.30 AM. Shingnapur is around 70 kms from Shirdi. After completing the darshan at Shingnapur the bus headed over to Ranjangaon Maha Ganapathy. En route there was a halt at 2 PM for lunch.

The bus reached Pune back at 5.30 PM.
