If you are going to the temple of Lord Shani Dev, Then, you should never worship Shani Dev by looking into Shani Dev’s face or eyes, but instead of the face, you should look at the feet of Shani Dev.
According to legend, the Surya rules Chaya Devi, the daughter of Daksha. Their children were Yama and Yami. Then Chaya Devi, unable to withstand the heat of the rays of the Surya, decides to pray to Lord Shiva to gain equal energy. She creates her own shadow and told Surya to look after the children until they are penciled in. The Surya dev was not aware of it. Thus, Shani Dev born to Surya and Chaya Devi.
When the Surya is close enough to see the son’s offspring born to him, Shani Dev looks completely black. The angry Surya Dev insults Chaya Devi, saying this is not my son. Shani looks cruel to the Surya when his mother was humiliated without reason. From it, the Surya turns black. The Surya, who does not understand this, requests the help of Parasiva. After Shiva explains the situation, the Surya dev apologizes and regains its original color. Since then Shani Dev and Surya Dev will be united.
