In the last few years i.e. on 31 May 2003 the largest Shani Idol was unveiled by Anant Shree Vibhushit Jagat Guru Shankracharya Swami Madhavasharam Ji Maharaj. Since then, it has become an attraction for the devotees of Lord Shani. Before unveiling the idol of Shani, Shree Shani Dham Peethadeshwar Sant Shiromani Shani Charanuragi 'Datti' Madan Maharaj Rajasthani ji performed the enchanting of One Hundred Crores, and Thirty Two Lakhs Shani Mantras on the sacred grove.
