Nani Moti Panoti

Shri Shani Dev, the dreaded Hindu deity temple well known as Nani-Moti Panoti across India and next best to Shri Shani Shingnapur Temple, is located at Jior-Pati Village close to Rajpipla. Shani Dev is one of the most popular deities that the Hindus worship to ward off evil and remove obstacles. Shani or Shanichar (Saturn) is believed to be the son of Surya, the Sun-god and Chhaya. Shani is believed to wield evil influence. Hence the day named after him, Shanivara, is considered inauspicious to begin any new venture.
