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.

"A 2 day trip in enough" new review

  • 6/7
  • Posted 1 week 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" new review

  • 7/7
  • Posted 3 weeks 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.

"A religious place to Visit anytime of the year." new review

  • 6/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
Visited Shirdi along with family for Shri Sai's darshan. Most of the hotels are around the temple and provide the pickup and drop facilities to temple. We stayed in Sai Grand Castle Inn. A decent place to stay and at a walkable distance of 10 minutes from Sai temple. Did the darshan early morning. Overall nice arrangement in Temple to from queues in waiting halls. We got the darshan in approx 1 hour which by the way was very good compare to long hours on specific days. Please note that mobile phones are not allowed in the temple for safety reasons.

When you think of Shirdi, you think of Shirdi ke SAI BABA. Whenever I face any problem and I feel that it is beyond my control, I close my eyes and remember Sai Baba and leave it upto him to decide my fate. Shirdi is an awesome religious place located in Maharashtra, India. This place is famous with Sai Baba and really all wishes approve here with Sai Baba. I booked a bus from Pune to Shirdi and also booked a hotel name "Hotel Sai Ashok" in Shirdi. I visited shirdi in may 2014 with my family.

"A holy visit"

  • 7/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
This was our Religious visit. We left from Mumbai and reached there by noon. There was huge crowd and queue for the visit. We had Mukh Darshan of Sai Baba. We decided to stay for the night. The next morning we stood in line at 5am and were in Sai darbar soon. You can opt for Sai Hotel very next to the temple. The food and room service is excellent. The Mukh darshan is a zoom out view of God from a distance, hence if you just have a day to spare, you can leave Mumbai at 7am in the morning and noon reach here and be back in Mumbai by 8pm at night. This is what we did in our second trip.

"Good and Nice experience"

  • 7/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Pro of the place:
Quality of Time.
Nice Hotels to stay.
Nice food in few restaurants.
Cons of the place:
Full amount of Corruption.
Few people always look to sack the money from you, so better be careful.

And those who want to visit the places near Shirdi it's better to make a plan for around 1 week or at least of 3 days plan to visit near by places.
