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.

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.

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.
