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.

"Overall, a good trip" new review

  • 5/7
  • Posted 5 days ago
I went on a small trip with my family on last week. The destination we covered was trimbakeshwar, shirdi, shanishignapur and bhimasanker. It was really an amazing trip. But the most awesome destination is shirdi. The facilities in shirdi is amazing, specially the shirdi trust. They provide you stay and food in very economic rate with good quality.

"Must visit for all Sai Devotees"

  • 6/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Overall, a great experience. Got a good hotel and great darshan with a safe ride back home, overall very fruitful visit. Once you reach here it is pretty easy to figure out how to get darshan. Lot of help from local people including shops who sell prasad and other items. You really do not have to spend any money to get darshan, they have a good system and very streamlined, just follow the signs and you should be good.

"Must visit in a lifetime; devotional"

  • 7/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Shirdi is the place where Sai Baba lived for many years and attained Samadhi. Sai Baba temple is the big highlight and the place is usually heavily crowded. The management authorities have to be really appreciated as they have put together a proper queue system to handle such large crowd and make everyone comfortable. It's a must see place in a lifetime for everyone.

"A must visit place"

  • 7/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Shirdi is considered as the place where sai baba used to stay and it is believed that the presence of baba is felt by the people in and around shirdi. Coming to the food, you many find traditional maharashtrian food. Its easily accessible by road, by train or by a flight. It is a place one must visit in your lifetime.

"A 2 day trip in enough"

  • 6/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Overall Experience was good, as I boarded shared taxi from pune bus stand till Ahmednagar, and taxi driver escorted me till the bus for shirdi. So it was good experience and have found marathi people to very humble and helpful. I would recommend everyone to plan a trip for 2 days to shirdi so that you can cover shani temple and Trimbakeshwar temple along with shirdi sai mandir.

"Good spiritual place to visit"

  • 7/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Shirdi is known as the village where Sai Baba used to live and there only he took samadhi in 1918 on the auspicious day of Dussehra.I had visited Shirdi three times before .This time due Babaji kripa I visited Shirdi with my family on the auspicious of Dussehra.There were very long queues for Darshan of Babaji's Samadhi starting from Mahalaxmi Mandir. There were proper arrangements to cover the queue area with tent and matting on the floor to protect from Sun and its heat. There were lots of fan and lights hanging with the ceiling of tent for proper light and air. There were lot of security personnel for managing queues and for checking devotees for security reasons. It took nearly three hours to reach in front of Babaji's Samadhi and Statue. We were very much tired but as if we reached there we felt very fresh and felt that as if Babaji stood there and saying that you are my children and I am with u always. I am unable to express my feelings with words.
