Gurusthan Overview

Ranked 10 of 20 sightseeing in Shirdi

Gurusthan is the place, where Sai Baba first appeared to the world as a 16 year old boy. It is situated under the sacred Neem Tree, which is very popular for providing shelter to Sai Baba. Renovated on 30th September, 1941, the site also contains a small shrine. A portrait of Sai Baba has been placed on an elevated platform of this shrine. A marble statue of Sai Baba is located near this shrine.

Shivlingam and the Nandi are placed in front of the portrait of Sai Baba. A temple constructed at the site contains photos of twelve Jyotirlingas. The place has derived its name, owing to the belief that it is the Gurusthan (seat of the teacher) of Sai Baba. Devotees strongly believe that lighting incense sticks in the temple will free them from various diseases.

Just behind the Samadhi Temple in the same temple complex

Gurusthan is just behind the Samadhi Temple in the same temple complex. After visiting samadhi temple when devotee take exir from the main temple, they directly come at Gurusthan.

Must see place in Shirdi temple

It is the place in the temple premises where the famous neem lies whose leaves are sweet to taste as opposed to other neem trees. Nowadays the people are not able to get the neem leaves as the leaves are collected by a net rather than falling down.

This place is now only a walking thing. About fifteen years back, this place was where you could sit for hours and unwind yourself.
