Shiv Shani Mandir, Dhori is a temple located in Bokaro District of Jharkhand. It is about 32 km from Bokaro and is located at the old B.D.O Office of Dhori, Phusro. The presiding deity of the temple, Sri Shiv, as well as Parvati, Ganesh, Hanuman, Kartikey and Shaneshwara or Lord Shani (the personification of the planet Saturn) are worshiped with utmost reverence and devotion by multitudes of people from all over the locality. Unlike other pilgrimage centers, devotees here can perform puja, abhishek, or other religious rituals themselves. One of the unique aspects of the temple is that it is the only temple in the Bermo area where Lord Shiva and Lord Shani are established together. The people here believe that it is the benediction of the god that the locality is quite peaceful. The Shri Maa Banaso Temple and the Surya Temple of Badhkaro are the nearby attractions.
