A 400-year-old ban on entry of women into the shrine s core area was lifted by the temple trust last week following advocacy group Bhoomata Brigade`s agitation against gender bias and the Bombay High Court order upholding the equal rights to worship.

What rubbish? Why are not women allowed to enter inside a temple? How can this be a ritual?

As per scriptures the chastity of women is very delicate. It can be maligned even by the moonlight. Women prefer to stay away from Shani Dev`s idol as a mark of respect just like the Indian women have for their elders. It is said that touching Shani Dev`s idol during pregnancy is bad for the foetus. Nobody visits the Shani temple during the prosperous times.
