last weekend was at Shirdi, Shani Shingnapur and Ranjangaon.
We left the city early at around 6:30 am and reached first @ Ranjangaon. In here is a famous MahaGanapati mandir, which is one of the 8 auspiscious Ganesha temples around Pune called as AshtaVinayak’s. Being in at around 7:30 am here was no rush and the temple was also not so crowded.
Shirdi came in next and there was huge rush. And we reached there around 11:30 hrs, so it was close to the noon prayers (aarti) for which the queue never got ahead for an hour or so just after a few minutes after we landed. We had the darshan of SaiBaba Mahraaj at around 14:30 hrs!
Shani Shingnapur is on another route to Pune, so the routes changed and being a Saturday itself , there was rush still we had the darshan of Shani Maharaaj (Lord Saturn)
Luckily, I had visited an astrologer who asked me to go to two places of the three above just a week back and visited the next week, all by Master’s grace!
