According to religious beliefs, Lord Shani is the son of Surya Dev and Chhaya. Sun God was married to Sangya, the daughter of Deva Vishwakarma. Later, they were blessed with two children; Yama and Yami. Due to excessive vibrance (Tej) of Sun God, Sangya was not able to bear it for a long time. She left her shadow, Devi Chhaya, for serving the God and herself left for tenacity (Tap). After some time, Chhaya gave birth to Shani Dev. Seeing the appearance of Lord Shani, Surya Deva refused to accept him as his son. Since then, Shani and Surya dislike each other, in spite of being father and son.
