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 great Destination" new review

  • 7/7
  • Posted 5 days ago
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.

"A nice religious destination" new review

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 6 days ago
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.

"Good devotional place to visit" new review

  • 7/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
A trip to Shirdi is never a 'Masti' trip. Do start with a calm mind, visit Baba with a blissful mind and come back with even more peace in your heart. Drive carefully. I would also advise visiting 'Shani Temple' at Shingnapur which is around 70 kilometers from Shirdi.

"Holy place to visit at-least once in a year"

  • 7/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Shirdi Sai is there, I believe him as my father who guides me all the ways in my life. It depends upon pure belief. I usually travel at Telugu new year period. People can visit when they are free from their work, book a ticket, come and stay, pray whole heartedly and everything will happen as desire. But belief and patience is important. You can go to Shani Shignapur which is near by. For south Indians near to Hanuman temple ten steps ahead Telugu hotel is there. My request to travellers is plan accordingly to the season prior in advance. Don't end up with mess at last minute.

"Overall, a good trip"

  • 5/7

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 3 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.
