We are mentioning Lord saneeswarar temples , comparatively less popular ,but powerful with ancient history:

2- Saneeswarar Temple at Sivagangai:
       This is one of the only few temples exclusively for Lord shaneeswarar. It is heard from Maha periyavaa history that Maha periyavaa has a Shaneeswarar idol during shani dasa period and prayed for universal well being. After that purpose is solved He has given that Idol to a Settiyar Devotee from sivagangai area and ask him to place the diety in his temple. The Settiyar has constructed a small temple at Masjid Street, Sivagangai with Lord Ganesh etc.,The temple main diety is Shaneeswarar only. since the Idol worshipped by Maha periyavaa swami - highly powerful if worshipped properly. Located in the heart of the Sivaganga Town.
____________________________________________________________________________ 3-Saneeswarara temple at Yerikuppam village,Polur Taluka thiruvannamalai dist. Here the shaneeswarar is in Yanthra Roopam in Moolasthanam. this also a temple exclusively for Shaneeswarar.Only recently renovation works started for a Prahara mandapam etc., to this small temple - but highly powerful. Worshipping Gods in Yanthra Roopam in temple and that too Yanthram installed by Munis long back, will be highly responded by the respective Gods. As per Mahaa Periyavaa advises , Lords Shaneeswarar, Navagrahas,Bhairavar and all Shiva Ganangal will be hearing our Prayers only if it is made through proper channel. All Shivaganangal are under control of Shiva and If we worship periodically Lord shiva with devotion as per our family practice , it will be enough to satisfy navagraha doshas etc., He also satirically uesd to tell Navagrahas/Yama are like shivaganangal ( Dhaadhaas or Bodyguards)in shivalogam and Devotees shall visit them only along with Lord Shiva and only on specific occasions like Sani Peyarchi / sani dasa puthi periods /dosha periods we shall make homams to "preethi" them. If we do "Preethi" to them very often without worshipping Lord Shiva universal Leader - It will be improper.
We shall Pray on our janma nakshatras or in the unfavourable transit periods etc only to Navagrahas/yama..

Hence We can worship Sivan Temples where separate Yaman Sannathi is there for getting relief from Shanis Look. It is to be mentioned here that mostly there will be No Navagraha Sannathi in the Shivan Temples where There is separate Yaman sannathis: Such Temples Are -- 
1- Thirukkadiyur Amirthakadeshwarar /Abirami Amman - where Kala samhara murthy will absolve all Sani Thoshams.
2- Sreevanchiyam Near Peralam Karaikal route - Vanchinatha Swami - 
3- Yamaneswaram Sivan Temple- near Nannilam 
4- Thiruppainjeeli near Tiruchi 
5- Thandeeswarar Temple where separate Yaman sannathi is there facing Moolavar Sivan known as Thandeeswarar 

15- Thiruvarur Thygarajar /Kamalambal temple. - The Vanmeeghanathar is worshipped by Saneeswarar for removal of his other Doshas. Here Navagrahams are are in a row on aline facing samr directions. After praying at Thirunallaru, Nalamaharaaja said to pray at Thirukillikadu & Thiruvarur for getting his sani dosham relieved 100%.
16-Thepperumanallur Viswanathar kovil near Kumbakonam. here Saneeswaran is in a standing position having his hands placed on his hips in a state of over proudness with a feeling he can catch anybody including God . Because of that overestimation of himself Saneeswar was torn into Peices by Lord Shiva & after Praying here he got his Image united. Worshipping here Shiva will remove all doshas.
17- At suriyanar kovil near aduthurai - saneeswarar is blessing all with his two wives in a standing position without Crow - his vahanam. this is rare. Worshipping here with family on Saturdays will reduce Sani effects.
18- At Kuthaalam near Mayiladuthurai , There is a Baathaala Shaneeswarar in Choleeswarar Temple . Shaneeswarar said to be Swayambu Eswarar. Very rare in Shivan Temple. Shaneeswarar in a Praying Position with folded hands ( holding Amirtha kalasal within hands).
During Renovation Process long ago , This vigraham could not be replaced since even after digging 15 feet the base of the Vigraham could not be found out. Hence this name Bathala Saneeswarar.
19-Perichiyur near Thirupathur (Sivagangai dist) Saneeswarar in a separate Sannathi facing West having Powerful Effects for Sani Dosham if worshipped on Saturdays evening
Besides All Shaneeswarars having separate Sannathis in Shivan temples, Shaneeswarar at Mayuranathar Temple (in thavakkolam),Shaneeswar at Thiruchendur Murugan temple ,
Pongu saneeeswarar at Vekkali amman koil at Tiruchi, Pattavarthy Saneeswarar at Kumbakonam, are worth visiting.

Shaneeswarar shall not be seen straight- i.e - his eye sight shall not fall on us directly. In most Temples you can see the eyes of Shaneeswarar would be half open only. That is in tune with the above sentiment only.
