Shingnapur is a village in the Indian state of Maharashtra its popular temple of Shani, the Hindu god associated with the planet (graha) Saturn.
Also, Shingnapur is famous for the fact that no house in the village has doors, only door frames.
Still some villagers never keep their valuables under lock and key. Villagers believe that the temple is a “jagrut devasthan” (lit. “alive temple”), meaning that the god here is very powerful.
In January 2011, the United Commercial (UCO) Bank opened a ‘lockless’ branch in the village, the first of its kind in the country, taking note of the near-zero crime rate in the region.
