The Sai Baba Temple in Shirdi

Great Saint Sai Baba’s birthplace, Shirdi is a holy site near Nasik with different temples apart from the famous temple of Sai Baba and a few historical sites. Located in Maharashtra’s Ahmednagar district, Shirdi has a wide significance as a holy and pilgrim place for devotees of Sai Baba.The small town is full of holy places and events that will soothe the visiting soul and quiet it down. The breeze here holds latent songs of faith and all the grandness around the same would leave you spellbound too. There are many places of faith to see in Shirdi such as Chavadi, Samadhi Mandir, Dwarkamai masjid, Shani Shignapur, to name a few.

The Shirdi, Dwarkamai

One of Shirdi’s jewels for the devotees is Dwarkamai. They tell Dwarkamai is Shirdi ‘s heart, the location where the great Sai Baba spent a large portion of his life including his final moments. It is a blessing to all devotees of Baba because it has been the birthplace of God on Earth, as they want to name him. People of all religions look up to the great Sai Baba and genuinely believe in what he believed. Here, the spirit of love , compassion and welcoming is alive. At first, this site was a dilapidated mosque covered with deep knee holes and collapsing ruins. Baba is the one who converted it into Dwarkamai and repeated who God is one.One is taken over by the sacred energies of Sai Baba, and bestowed upon entering this mosque with his blessings. The striking and strong aura of positivity is so soothing and peaceful that one can feel the liberation of their soul from all worries, insecurities and negativity. Upon entering the home of Baba you feel at home. You feel at peace. What is very fascinating and worth remembering is that people from all cultures and religions come here to pay homage to Sai Baba and do so because they find it enjoyable in their own way. Some kneel and lay their heads on the altar, some pray to the ‘dhuni’ which is the holy fire that burns forever and some read their ‘japas’ or read from holy scriptures.

Shirdi Gurusthan

Gurusthan is the location where the 16 year old boy Sai Baba first appeared to the world. The location is underneath a Neem branch. It also has a shrine where the image of Sai baba is put right in front of it, with a Shivalingam and the Nandi ram. Gurusthan converts into the location where the saint Guru lives. It is also the spot where Sai Baba spent much of his time coming to Shirdi for the first time, and also where, according to Baba, his own guru ‘s tomb is situated by the neem tree. According to the story, when some villagers were digging the earth just behind the neem tree to lay the foundations for Sathe Wada, they came across some bricks in the soil that looked like the beginning of a tunnel.Uncertain about going ahead with their work, they sought advice from Baba on the subject. Baba told them not to search any more, as this was his ancestors / Guru’s resting spot, so it would be in their benefit not to bother them. The most remarkable aspect of the holy neem tree is that its leaves are not bitter but sweet, and even today it continues to lavish its warm blessings upon the pilgrims.Gurusthan means- the teacher’s seat. Devotees sincerely believe that the illumination of incense sticks at this location would relieve them from all their illnesses. This site is in Kopargaon, about 14 km from Shirdi’s main town.

Chavadi  Shirdi

Sai baba used to spend alternating nights at Chavadi during his last years. The place is situated near the Dwarkamai mosque from where Sai baba’s procession was held in a palki along with his disciples. Chavadi is historically the location where taxes were raised, village records kept, disputes resolved by the village members,And officials who visited stayed. So it happened that once the Dwarkamai mosque where Baba used to live in Shirdi, during the monsoons, was unfit to provide shelter to him because of its leaky walls. As a result, his devotees affectionately forced him to leave the mosque out of pure love and compassion for Baba, and then moved him to the Chavadi.Soon afterward, Baba began to spend alternating nights at the Chavadi and the place was sanctified by his presence and daily aarti offerings to honor him. The Sansthan inherited the Chavadi after Baba’s mahasamadhi, and used it for storing books and entertaining pilgrims until the late 1930s. The village offices have been moved for a long time, and the Chavadi is preserved as a shrine for Baba and It is available to everyone. Also today, every Thursday a procession takes place with the saint’s idol inside the palki. Thus the location is of great significance to the followers of Sai baba.

Shani Sighnapur

Shingnapur is a small village near Shirdi where, for almost a century now, the most famous and conscious shrine of the Hindu god Shani, son of the Sun God, remains. It is also one of the tourist attractions close to Shirdi. The story of the Shani temple in Shingnapur goes something like this: once the god Shani appeared in the vision of a noble Shingnapur man, and requested him to visit the nearby river,Remove the slab of stone lying by its coast, place it in a temple and worship it with proper respect. The holy stone slab was lifted from the river with much difficulty and placed in an open-air temple in the village. Lord Shani ‘s presence in the village is so powerful that no thief has ever escaped his wrath to this day.Because of this, the Shingnapur villagers have never locked their homes with doors or even felt the need to place their precious belongings under lock and secure. Devotees who visit Shirdi also come to the shrine of Shani, the God of justice for humans on earth, to please him with their prayers and offers of devotion, and ask him to forgive their sins and save their soul from his unsparing wrath.

Lendi Baug Shirdi

The beautiful garden is located on highway from Shirdi-Manmade Province. Sai Baba used to spend most of his time here in the mornings and evenings, watering the plants everyday. Sai baba once got shade and rest from the Neem tree in the garden.

Shaniwarwada 

Initially Shaniwarwada was the seven-storey headquarters of the Maratha Empire’s Peshwas.

Also now, if you closely tour to see the walls, they ‘re partly made of stone to partly of bricks. The Wada was done and, 90 years on, after being struck by the British Artillery, all the top six floors collapsed leaving only the stone foundation,That was in the British artillery immune.

I have detested not seeing a good picture for some time. Yet then I remembered the trees are part and parcel of the place’s ambiance.The structure is beautiful in light gray with the red slanting roof-making it looks vibrant in a very subtle way.
