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 Darshan" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
I have gone many time to Shirdi darshan. I recently gone at last week of year many of person ask me to not get journey because off heavy rush, but thanks to Shirdi sai trust they start biometric darshan which give time slots for darshan. It's make darshan easy and rush free and takes less time from my previous bad experience. My total darshan time approx 1. 5 hrs (included biometric) pass getting time.

"Baba's presence all around" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
Very clean and neat sansthan, some changes after my previous visit during 2012. As we planned to visit on Thursday, we purchased online darshan tickets rs200/- per head. Else, regular darshan is also well organized for which we have to go and get darshan token which gives time when we have to be in queue. But I cannot confirm the benefit of free darshan token. This time, we got free laddu Bundi prasad after darshan. As we could not get Aarthi tickets ( booking for which is already closed until Jan), but went in freely for Sejh Aarthi through Gate 2 and many like us were sitting outside with a view of baba from window and live on screen projection was also available. It was wonderful experience.
We also visited Nasik (water in godavari was not clean, no flowing water), Kalaram temple was good. Thriambhak improved in shopping, but temple maintenance is very poor. Grishneshwar was good, OK type temple maintenance, could be developed hugely. Auranagabad is not so great, just visited duplicate Taj ( Bibi ka makbara) by Auranagajeb's son for his mother.
Travel to upasani baba's temple in Tanga was a good experience. Visit to same old kandoba temple where we heard about Sai's relation with him, was good.
Overall pleasant 3 days visit from Hyderabad by Orange sleeper travels.

"The Sai Temple was awesome. G"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
The temple and nearby temples are worth visiting. The market place is also good and crowded ... Eating the food at Sai Prasadalaya was one of the highlights. Good management by Sai Trust. The hotel location was great and walkable distance from the temple.

"Religious place"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
It is a religious place. People are nice and friendly. You get north indian and south indian food at many places apart from that you have the prasadalaya which serves food pronominal charges. Like all religious places crowded. Taxi drivers make a good fortune. From Kopargaon to Shirdi the distance is 20 km and they charge INR 300-400. Shared autos are cheaper but crowded. We got the premium seats -to sit in the front with the driver and paid more than the back seaters!!! Generally hotel people are helpful by providing to and fro commute to temple free.

"Peaceful place"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Shirdi is a peaceful place. It has good sight seeing environment. People from various states and countries visit Shirdi.
When people visit Shirdi should also visit shani shegnapur where lord shani's temple is located. Ellora caves are also nearby place of Shirdi. I visited Shirdi few months ago. When people are visiting Shirdi try to spend more time in temple which makes you happy.

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
This visit to Shirdi is Good like before. I am coming here since 1984. It is place of my God where me and my family visits regularly to get the Blessing of Sai Baba. Since 1983 to till today we have seen lot of changes in this city. We have seen this village to converting in a town. All type of touring facilities are available here lot of eating places. After co. I g here you can eat any type of food like Gujarati, Hyderabadi, Marathi, Punjabi, etc. So many restaurants are out of town where you can enjoy night dhaba food. Overall it is a nice visit. Jai Sai Nath Ji ki.
