The Temple of Bhimashankar

Endowed with religious opulence, Bhimashankar Hill Station is richly enveloped in nature’s ethereal pulchritude and is rightly called one of Mumbai’s popular hill stations. The Bhimashankar temple is a modest and elegant temple, dating back to the 13th century when Nana Phadnavis constructed the sabha mandap in the 18th century. Nana Phadnavis had designed the Shikhara. It is said that the great Maratha king Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj made endowments to this temple to encourage service of worship. It is among the twelve traditional Lord Shiva shrines in India called ‘Jyotirlinga.’ Bhimashankar is located in Bhorgiri village, in the Sahyadri range ghat region.  Since the jyotirlinga, it is considered one of the holiest sites in India. Even Bhimashankar is a popular trekking destination. Bhimashankar ‘s Sacred Shrine is an architectural work in the Naga style. The temple beautifully shows the insightful work of ancient Vishwakarma sculptors. Located atop the hills, this place is perfect for nature lovers and trekkers alike. It has acquired tremendous significance in recent years and was declared a Wildlife Sanctuary. The modest yet graceful temple dates back to the 13th century and is also adorned with cravings for Buddha. A trek into the temple of Bhimashankar brings a touch of excitement to your holy tour.

Ellora Caves

Ellora is a UNESCO World Heritage Site set in Maharashtra, India’s Aurangabad district. It is one of the world’s largest rock-cut monastery-temple cave complexes, with Hindu , Buddhist and Jain temples and artworks,Kailasa, Kailasanatha; cave 16, named for the mountain in the Himalayan Kailas Range where the Hindu god Shiva resides, is the most remarkable of the cave temples. Unlike other site temples, which were first horizontally delved into the rock face, the Kailasa complex was excavated down from a basaltic slope and is thus largely exposed to sunlight.The Vishvakarma cave (cave 10) has Hindu and Buddhist figure carvings, as well as a lively dancing dwarf scene. The cave 32, which includes fine carvings of lotus flowers and other elaborate ornaments, is notable among the Jain temples. The caves attract huge numbers of religious visitors and tourists each year.

Shirdi Sai Baba

An exceptional characteristic of Sai Baba is that he is above faith, caste or creed distinctions. Many claims that he is Hindu, some call him a Prophet. He represented all religions, and he was stripped of all rigor. Hindus and Muslims find their meeting point in Sai, and the great love and respect which Baba inspires in them unite people from all religions and all walks of life.”I look at it with an open heart,” Baba said, and among his diverse devotees, he did not brook any conflict or religious prejudice. Sai Baba is revered as one of India’s greatest saints ever seen, blessed with unprecedented powers, and worshipped as an incarnate Deity. This enigmatic being, who came as a youth unannounced at Shirdi and stayed there throughout his long life, changed the lives of those who met him and continues to do so for those whose hearts are touched by his love.

Trimbakeshwar Shiva Temple 

Trimbakeshwar Shiva Temple is an ancient Hindu temple in Trimbak town, in Trimbakeshwar tehsil, Maharashtra Nashik district. Trimbakeshwar Shiva Templetemple stands between three slopes: Brahmagiri, Nilagiri, and Kalagiri. The temple has three lingams representing Shiv, Vishnu, and Brahma (an iconic shiv form). Amritavarshini is the temple tank, which measured 28 m bu 30 m. Three other bodies of water are present, namely Bilva Theertha, Viswananthirtha, and Mukundathirtha. Several deities, namely Gangadevi, Jaleswara, Rameswara, Gautameswara, Kedarnath, Rama, Krishna, Parasurama, and Lakshmi Narayana, are represented. The temple also has several saintly monasteries and samadhis. According to the Shiva Purana, Brahma and Vishnu (the Hindu god of preservation) once had an argument in terms of creation supremacy. Shiva perforated the three realms as a massive everlasting pillar of fire, the jyotirlinga, to test them. Vishnu and Brahma divided their directions down and up to reach the end of the light in either direction, respectively. Brahma lied because, though Vishnu conceded his defeat, he found out the source. Shiva emerged as the second pillar of light and cursed Brahma that he would have no role in ceremonies when Vishnu would be revered until the end of time. The jyotirlinga is the ultimate partless reality, in which Shiva appears partially.

Grishneshwar Temple

The temple of Grishneshwar is situated in a village called Verul, about 30 km away from Aurangabad and 11 km away from Daulatabad (Devagiri). It is very similar to caves about 2 km from Ellora. Grishneshwar temple is one of 12 jyotirlingas (referred to in Shiva Purana) in India.

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 anymore, 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 of 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. 

 Lendi Baug, Shirdi 

The beautiful garden is located on the 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. There is a marble ‘Deepagraha’ in the garden where Sai once lit a deep-sea that even today burns from dusk to dawn.The Deep (earthen) lamp was lit under the Neem tree and held in that pit. In memory of this location one octangular Deepgriha named Nanda Deep was founded in marble stone. It burns up in a glass box continuously. There is a Peepal tree on one side of the Deepgriha, and a Neem tree on the other. A Datta Mandir beneath an Audumbar tree is some distance away.
