Overview:

Shri Shani Dham Temple is a temple dedicated to the Hindu God Shani Dev. It is located in Asola, a suburb of Indian capital Delhi.
On 31 May 2003, a large Shani image made of rock, the largest in the world, was unveiled. It has become an attraction for devotees of Lord Shani. In 2018 the temple came under scrutiny for their affiliation with Daati Maharaj, who had been accused of sexual assault. In 2020 the temple held religious gatherings in violation of local social distancing rules related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The temple is divided into two parts: eastern and western. It has a library and a research center alongside an inquiry office, reception office and the publication department.
The eastern part is home to the large Shani idol and idols of the twelve ‘Jyotirlings’. In the western part there are large Shani statues erected over the buffalo and the vulture. To the right of these statues is an idol of Hanuman. The western section also contains an oblation pool and idols of the nine planets. The temple is open to people of all religions and is visited by thousands of devotees every year. It is especially crowded on Saturdays, which is considered to be the day of Lord Shani. The temple also conducts various religious and cultural programs throughout the year.
