Shani Shingnapur temple

It is a century old tradition being followed over the years where by women are prohibited from entering the core area of the Shani Shingnapur temple in the Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra. Worship is a personal choice and women devotees who want to enter the temple should be allowed to offer their prayers. Times have changed and there is nothing wrong in breaking away from this tradition, what is wrong is an attempt to resist such a change and rake up a controversy over this.
