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

  • 7/7
  • Posted 2 weeks 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 1 month 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 1 month 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.

"An amazing place"

  • 7/7
  • Posted 2 months 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"

  • 7/7
  • Posted 2 months 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.

"A holy place"

  • 6/7

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.
