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.

"Religious Trip" new review

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Today
I went to Shirdi with my family. Shirdi is the place Sai baba preached good to all his devotees. His Samadhi is in Shirdi, a sacred place. Shirdi is a very hot place, so best season to visit is monsoons or winter season. Shirdi is connected well by buses and Trains.
You can find good North Indian food to try there like rotis, Parathas' etc. You can try Marathi local cuisines too if interested.
You have all kinds of hotels in Shirdi from budget to luxury, so choose your type

Nice place for religious trip. Family time and feel good at the temple. I have just traveled there but the were no water but still people there were enjoying as they have believe that Sai Baba will cure their problem. The street food has their own fun try food of restaurants called Shree. Nice Punjabi food and very tasty. Davrika Mai over there it feels like all your stress is gone and you are relief and relaxed by everything.

"The land of Sai Baba" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
Shirdi is one religious place which I want to travel every year, twice and that too with my entire family. The religious environment of this place is such that you just can't help but sink in the aura of sai baba. Easily connected via road, train and air. Sai sansthan provide excellent rooms to stay with prasad i.e Veg meal. Shirdi is a must visit.

"Good to visit here" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
Good trip in total, we are from Bagepalli, KAR, may be not a good time to visit the place as temperatures are at high in that part, all tickets and passes booked 1 month before, so got darshan within 30 min even on thursday, but we missed Aarthi, but 1st time visiting so it's Ok. Excellent work by Sai Sansthan trust, you should also visit the surrounding places Shani Shingnapur, Nasik, Ellora, Eshwar temple, mini Taj Mahal etc, package tours available, please start it within 8 morning, better get darshan within 7, Shirdi people are good.

It is the destination that gives you peace of mind and also the strength to fight each and every situation, with darshan of Sai baba you will find the strength to fight every situation and also find peace of mind which in turn gives you the real inner strength to come out of any problem.

"A wonderful experience"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
It was a wonderful experience of Shirdi this time we have booked all four Baba's Arties online. My husband, my son and I went by train and came back by train although my seat was not reserved but with Baba's grace we got reservation and to and fro journey was very comfortable. Hotel experience was wonderful. To attend kakad aarti we have to go to temple at 2.15 A M. At this odd hours hotel has provided us auto to go to temple Wow. All are very co-operative they take care of everything. The restaurant was very good, we took all our meals as we are having at our own place. Restaurant is very cheap and the best.

I will never forget this experience in my life.

"Must visit place to get Sai Baba's blessing"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
I would advise to go to temple from Oct to Feb as from March onwards temperature become high and it is very difficult with Kids to travel. But Sai Bhakt should go every year once. Very nice place of sai baba darshan. Shirdi is the last resort of every Sai devotees. Feeling very happy n proud after darshan at temple of sai, will again come on next year. Nice feeling when entered the temple, will recommend everyone to visit the temple once in life.

Shirdi is a famous place of Sai baba ji. It is holy place for all devotees. All roads surrounding the complex are surprisingly good. I had received complete aarti of baba and I am very happy for that. I loved the place and would like to visit there again and again.

"A holy place"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
This is a holy place of sai baba, one has to visit this place in your life & take the blessing of bhagavan sainath, the climate will be hot throughout the year. There are special tickets for darshan. If their is crowd book the special tickets otherwise not necessary. At night & early morning there will be kakad aarthi. At that time they allow public to sit in front of baba and after that the temple will close.
