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.

"An amazing place" new review

  • 7/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
We went on a Friday evening and there was lesser crowd. There were these brokers who led us to gate 4 and sold us the pooja things, which we bought promptly. But we had to walk till gate 1 without the chappals, so beware. We got to do darshan in 30-45 mins time. The floors leading to the main pooja room were not completely clean, there was chaos, line breaking etc as usual. Nevertheless we did the darshan nicely in our own time and came back.

"Mythological place to get inner peace" new review

  • 7/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
It's the place where Shri Sai Baba lived his life and when you come here you get inner peace. You see that thousands of people eat together and lakhs of people daily visit to fulfil their wish and inner peace. The whole year Shirdi looks like a place like kumbh mela or any other religious place.

I personally ask or pray for you to at least once in your life visit Shirdi.

Last year we have travelled to Shirdi for sai baba's darshan. Here we have got a darshan of said baba and some other gods like as shani signapur, trayambakeshwar, nasik etc. The sai ashram was nice with greeneries around. And prasad was also very good.

One who has darshan of Sai in Shirdi, is indeed a blessed soul. The Sai Temple authorities have done excellent arrangements for darshan (online booking ) and strict vigil is maintained. The sevakas inside the Temple, are friendly and allow you to have a good darshan, as most of them travel thousands of miles for the darshan. The temple however should discourage persons who speed in their bikes near the entrance leading to the Shani Gate.

We office guys went to Sai Baba temple in Shirdi. We stayed over there for 3 days. It was nice experience to stay there. The food over the street was too good. Recently there is resort; where we guys enjoyed a lot. The environment gives pleasant feel. All the stress was vanished. Really a nice place to visit during winter season. Hope you guys prefer to visit here during winter season for more fun and enjoyment. Its a pleasant place to spend weekends.

It was a nice experience to go to Shirdi. Shirdi is a religious place of God Sai Baba and also very near to God Shani place Shani Shignapur. We first hired taxi to Shani Shignapur and come back to our Hotel, we had lunch. We went to Shirdi temple at evening.

  • 6/7

Overall it was very worthy to visit Shirdi and specially in the month of December and with lots of family members. The journey was enjoyable. How it started and got to an end we could not realise that. It was just awesome to have that type of tour. Every one must visit the tourism of Shirdi area. I am glad that I have been there once.
