Shirdi, mostly known for the great saint Shirdi Sai Baba, is situated in the Ahmednagar District of Maharashtra. Shirdi, also known as the Land of Sai, is a popular destination of pilgrims throughout the year. The earlier history of Shirdi is not known but Shirdi shot to fame during the earlier 20th Century.

The name ‘Shirdi’ is interconnected with the life of Shirdi Sai Baba. Shirdi Sai Baba visited Shirdi when he was sixteen years old and stayed there until his death in 1918. Through Shirdi Sai Baba, Shirdi has earned a significant place among the pilgrimage destinations of India.  

Shirdi is a small town in Maharashtra that comprises an area of about 3 sq. km. Shirdi is located at a distance of about 297 km from Mumbai, 82 km from Ahmednagar and 80 km from the religious city of Nasik and 16 km from Kopargaon.

The State Government of Maharashtra along with the Shirdi municipal council & Shri Sai Baba Sansthan are planning for infrastructure development in Shirdi, keeping in mind the 100th anniversary of Shri Sai Baba Punyatithi on the day of Dusshera in 2018. Another project for the integrated development of Shirdi and its surrounding villages has given boost to the thriving hospitality industry in the area.  

The Shirdi temple complex which is the main attraction of Shirdi covers an area of about 200 sq. m. The temple complex includes Khandoba, Gurusthan, Samadhi Mandir, Dwarkamai, Chavadi and Lendi Baug.  Maruti Temple and Shani Temple, constructed under the supervision of Shirdi Sai Baba, are the other places of attraction in Shirdi.

Shirdi is a beautiful place of sai baba, where you can stay in this heavenly place for peace of mind and babas darshan should be done at the time of kakad aarti. This religious place is known as Lord Shree Ram's avatar (Roop) and he has done many miracles at this place and everyone believe the miracles of this place. Om Sai Ram..!

We visited sai nath temple, and we visited a lot of near by places like shani shingnapur which is famous for god shaneshwar. And we visited ajanta caves, also saw nashik which was a jyotirlinga, also visited mini taj mahal. A good historical tour for us. Our family enjoyed a lot after viewing all this locations.

It is place where we can see the God, its an excellent place to visit. I have visited many religious places but I have never seen this type of temple till now, I think that's why it's called as heaven on earth. Overall it's a place of heaven on earth. Shri Sainath maharajah ki jay.

Sai baba is very powerful god if we think of anything we will achieve in our life. Shirdi is the place where we will be very happy and forget all our pains. And we also visited shanishwara Temple it was also a great place where we will release all our tensions and will be happy.

"A nice destination" new review

  • 6/7

Although, it is basically a town and not a city of the Ahmednagar District of Maharashtra. This place gives you all the things which a traveler needs at a particular destination. Right from the lodges to five star hotels, everything is present depending upon your pocket.

"A wonderful experience"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Shirdi is a religious place to visit in any month of the year. All the temples are historic and very well-maintained. The stay at the hotel was excellent and food quality was great. The roads leading to Shirdi is only thing to worry. But overall experience is much much better.

This was a 2 trip Shirdi. Very holy and sacred place. Every human being must visit Shirdi once to have sai baba blessing. We feel very fortunate to visit this place.
