Bajaj Discover ad : No locks @ one place in Maharashtra

There is a place in Maharashtra, where everybody visits mostly during the Sade- Sati period (the period in which the Saturn planet enters one’s zodiac for 7.5 yrs) called Shani Shingnapur. The Saturn god’s statue is located in an open ground, where devotees, worship Him. Saturn is said to punish who do evil and takes back the good virtues if somebody crosses the boundaries.

Definitely visited by many, this place is also known for its another  speciality, there are no locks @ any doors in the town, a curiosity for the visitors.
