Shree Mangal Graha Mandir
Shri Mangal Dev Temple of Amalner is one of the most ancient, most rare and most ‘live’ (a temple where people experience fulfillment of wishes and desires) of temples in entire India.
It is public knowledge that temples of Shri Mangal Dev are very rare. Who constructed the Mangal Dev Grah (planet) temple in Amalner and when was the idol established? There is no authentic information regarding this. Some believe that the temple was renovated for the first time in 1933. After 1940 the temple once again went into oblivion and reached a stage of dilapidation. Till 1999 the surroundings of the temple were used as a dumping ground for the town’s waste. It was also a hideout for criminals and other anti-social activities. This fact seems unbelievable but is unfortunately true.
The post 1999 renovation has brought about a miraculously pleasant transformation in the temple and its surroundings. In the last 5 to 7 years the pace of development of the place and facilities has increased manifold.
