Shirdi Sai Baba Temple

Shirdi is a small rural town in the Ahmednagar district of Rahata Taluka, in India’s Maharashtra state. Shirdi is a secular environment where all faiths are regarded first and foremost as one, and a belief in the strength of Faith & Courage. A place where all the heads bow down in prayer, where faith prevails, where hope is founded, where courage pays, and where there abounds everlasting joy and eternal contentment. This is the pride of the position belonging to the Holy One, a real source of knowledge, who delighted with religious dignity and talented human ornaments to humanity and goodwill by saying “SABKA MALIK EK.” Saibaba ‘s footsteps have made the area a sacred spot. This constantly flocks millions of devotees from all over India and abroad. Located on Autobahn Ahmednagar-Manmad.

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.

Museum

The Sai Museum in Shirdi is a rich repository of all Shri Saibaba related things. Keeped under Shirdi’s Saibaba Sansthan, the museum has some of the Spiritual Guru Saibaba’s most private , personal possessions. Devotees from around the world are touring this Dwarkamai museum. The Sai Museum has properly stored many of the items similar to this charismatic Guru. It has padukas or boots from Saibaba, which are worshipped by devotees of the Sai. The place also has some of the coins issued to Malsapati by Saibaba, Khandoba’s priest. The museum retains the two utensils which were used in crowds to feed food. One was tiny and another large in these utensils.The smaller one was used to supply food for 50 people while the large one was used to feed a party of 100 people. Lord Saibaba also used a Grinding Mill in the museum. This grinding mill has its own purpose, and symbolizes Sri Saibaba’s deep-seated ideology.

Chavadi

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.

 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.
