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.

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. The statue of sai baba is so true to feel and all your mind and heart gets into devotion and a feel of peace. The overall experience of staying is Shiridi is good.

  • Posted 1 week ago
We visited Shree Sai Baba Mandir, Dwarkamai, Chavri etc we had taken prasad from Bhojnalaya, we had taken datrshan of palaki on thursday. We also enjoyed food at South Indian restaurant in front of Sai Baba mandir gate no. 2, we also visited Shani Signapur and performed pooja, Shirdi temple is very pious place one should visit the place again and again to get the ashirwad of Sai Baba, the shops in the market charge much more amount for chadar, prasad etc.

"Peaceful and holy place" new review

  • 5/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
This was my 3 trip to Shirdi and I feel like going again and again. This is the place where you feel peace and holy. The Sai Baba statue is too good and feel like he is sitting in real. The only prob over here is food. The food that we get nearby is not that good and there are no good hotels. For stay and all, it's quite decent. Middle class family can also afford. But the flower shop guys and auto guys will take money like anything.

"True belief place" new review

  • 7/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
This was our fourth visit to Shirdi. Every time the darshan of Shri Sai Baba Ā¯ gives us inner harmony. This time we booked a Arti online and my own experience is that Darshan is much comfortable because at time of aarti the staff could not control the crowed effectively.

"A peaceful place to go and feel the real god on earth"

  • 7/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
I had been there in Shirdi on 3rd June to 6th June. I was with my family, it was my first visit to Shirdi. And I can say that is not last. I feel like heaven and very near to god You can see Sai's real things in museum and Sai Samadhi.

Dwarawati and chawri where Baba used to stay and pray. Friends don't have word to describe my experience so go and feel the real god on earth. Food is good around places but go to bhojanalaya, it's around 1 km frm Mandir you can get great food in 40 Rs only. It's unlimited and for stay choose always Dwarawati because it's very near to Mandir and very neat and clean run by Sai trust.

The overall experience at Shirdi was good. It is a very nice, peaceful and religious place. The Shirdi Sai temple was just exquisite and it gave a devotional feeling. The weather was also very pleasant. Hotels and travel vehicles are plentily available and bus services are also present readily. People here are also very nice and heartwarming.

"Well-managed and well-built shrine"

  • 2/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
A good place for sai devotees, the top shrine I must say. Well-managed and well-built. Must visit if you want to have peaceful time alone in the sanctity. Must visit time according to me is in July as its rainy season. Time spent in line to have Darshan will not create problem due to good weather. Must visit is shani shingnapur which can be reached with the help of taxi.

"Place to get peace of mind at Baba darbar"

  • 6/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
You will get long queue to enter inside temple and one had to wait till 3-4 hours minimum. It may vary depends on crowd. Place is well secured. Suggest you to keep your footwear in hotel you stay and select hotel nearby mandir. Nearby place to visit is Shani Singapore.
