Temple History :

Sri Shani Mahatma Temple, Kanasawadi is located at a distance of 14 Km from Nelamangala on Nelamangala – Doddaballapur Road in Doddaballapur taluk, Bangalore rural district. This place is also called as Chikka Madhure. The temple is equally important and sacred like Shaneshwara Temple at Pavagada in Tumkur district. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shani Mahatma (The Saturn), the second largest planet. The Shani Mahatma Temple located at Chikka Madhure was constructed by Ganga Hanumaiah, a local farmer. The temple attracts devotees in huge numbers especially on Saturdays of Shravana Masa (Hindu Month). Among all other planets of Nava Grahas, Lord Shani Deva have more importance.

One who has blessed with Shani Deva will be the happiest person in the world. It is said that if Lord Shani Deva got anger on anyone, Then their career will be difficult. So everyone needs Lord Shani Devas blessings to live their life happily. It is believed that one can get rid of or lessen the negative effects of Sade Sathi or Ashtama Shani or Panchama Shani on worshipping or by offering special poojas to Sri Shaneshwara Temple at Chikka Madhure. In support of this, you can see a lot of people offering Ellu Batti to the fireplace right in front of the temple. ‘Ellu Batti’ means black sesame seeds are put into small pieces of cloth and are tied with black thread and this is dipped in Gingelly oil (Sesame oil).
