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.

I liked everything from beginning till end. It's a nice way to spend time with your loved ones in such a peaceful and devotional place. Fresh roses are available for the entire day. Systematic arrangements in the temple premises. Hats off to the authorities.

"Combination of modern and ancient temple" new review

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
The place is very nice, but crowded sometimes. You need to wait for hours to get a little glimpse of God Shree Sai. But the temple is very large and great combination of modern and ancient temple. The water park is little bit expensive but it's worth the money you spend in it. Over all it was a nice place to visit.

The overall experience of this place was very nice and peaceful. Hotels are well maintained. There are multiple places to visit near Shirdi. It remains active and is pretty safe for whole night as well. Some of the places to visit nearby are: Shani Shringnapur, Triambhkesvar Temple & Pune.

"A religious destination" new review

  • 6/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
The journey, stay, food and time spent in various places of worship in Shirdi is really good and memorable. However it would have been better to have a good restaurant in the premises of the Sai Ashram which is very large. Eventhough the complex provided free food to devotees in its premises, the same is not suitable for all. One should visit such places of worship with elders, at least once in 2 to 3 years.

"A great Destination"

  • 7/7

One should spend minimum 2 nights at Shirdi / Nashik to enjoy completely if going with the Family. See superb greenery of farms, stop over & check out different plants / vegetables/ fruits. Enjoy fresh Sugarcane Juice. Off course every thing is incomplete without blessing of Baba. One should definitely visit Shani Shignapur after shirdi too.

If we talk about the over all experience was good. Spent sufficient time in temple, Shirdi is not too much expensive destination. There is all kind of facility which is required for any pilgrim. We had enjoyed food at hotel as well as near temple dabas, we enjoyed our stay at hotel and overnight journey in A/C sleeper bus.

Very good place for devotees of Sai Baba. We have visited Shirdi and Mumbai and the trip was excellent and memorable. Shirdi have good hotels with Goods foods. Marathi peoples are also very nice and soft spoken. Must visit Wet N Joy Water Park, its very good water park and masti destination. Also visit Shani Signapur and Nasik Darshan.

The shirdi is nearby kopargaon. I like the peda of shirdi. I also like the parsad prasadalaya. I like vada pav. The people of shirdi are helpful. But the prices of hotel are so high. Even on normal days. The food of hotels in shirdi are so costly. It take so much time about 4 hours during darshan.

It is a very good temple, I often go over there. There is a big temple of sai baba where I go & worship. Many people come and worship. There are many buses which come from various destination. Some people also come walking. As pilgrimage they say if you go with open heart your wish is fulfilled. There are many hotels around. There are markets where you get good fruits and veggies.
