Mantralayam

Mantralayam is a pilgrim village in the district of Kurnool, in Andhra Pradesh, India. It sits on the banks of the Tungabhadra River at the boundary with the neighboring state of Karnataka. The village is known for Raghavendra Swamy’s Brindavan, a saint who lived before his followers in the 17th century and who joined a samadhi alive. The Raghavendra Matha and temples situated on the banks of the Tungabhadra River are visited by thousands of people. Mantralayam is renowned for the holy presence of the Sri Guru Raghavendra Swamy Brindavan. Sri Guru Raghavendra Swamy is believed to be alive in the Brindavan for 700 years, and to bless the devotees. His devotees are also known as Rayaru, and Guru Raya.

Brindavan – The Sacred Burial,

Mantralayam is well-known for the holy presence of the Brindavan of Sri Guru Raghavendra Swamy. It is assumed that Sri Guru Raghavendra Swamy could be in the Brindavan alive for seven-hundred years and blessing the devotees. Also known as Rayaru and Guru Raya via his devotees.

The Three Chariots,

There are three chariots inside the temple, one plated in gold, the opposite in silver, and the 1/3 in sandalwood. A new chariot is a product of Navaratna Stones that allows you to be used for unique occasions. The idol of the saint is carried across the temple each day.

The Grama Devata of Mantralayam is Goddess Manchalamma, 

Before the arrival of Sri Guru Raghavendra Swamy, the village was regarded by using the call Manchali or Manchalaya due to the grama devata or the presiding deity of the village Goddess Manchalamma. Even these days, before taking the darshan of Raghavendra Swamy, one has to first take the darshan of Goddess Manchalamma and only then proceed.

Shirdi Sai Baba

Traditionally known as the site housing Lord Khandoba ‘s holy temple, an incarnation of the Hindu God Shiva, Shirdi grew to fame and glory as a treasure chest of spiritual vibrations due to his friendship of strong with the renowned Saint Shri Sai Baba. It is recognized as the former home of respected spiritual leader Sai Baba, and a pilgrimage site of considerable significance. Devotees arrive at the Camp everyday strong Sai Baba Temple to honor his legacy. Here the shrine of Samadhi Mandir has an ornate marble statue of Sai Baba, pilgrims to Shirdi confessed to total tranquility of spirit, high self-confidence, and a great sense of mission during their stay in the Holy spot. So too Sai, the giant Yogeshwar, by Shirdi’s wonderful grace, He stood on the banks of the Godavari for the sake of the deliverance of the earth.

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. Kept 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.

Grishneshwar is the Jyotirlingas’ smallest and is considered India’s last or twelfth Jyotirlinga. Entry to the Temple of Grishneshwar is available to all, but to reach the Garbhagriha (the central sanctum that houses the Shiva Linga), people need to be bare-hearted. It is also one of India’s only Jyotirlingas, where devotees can bare-handedly reach the Shiva Linga. The temple architecture follows a South Indian style and is known to be one of Aurangabad’s holiest places to visit. The Grishneshwar Temple’s five-tiered shikhara is spectacularly carved and constructed in the typical style of temple architecture. The present type temple was restored several times during the 18th century by Queen Ahilyabai Holkar of Indore.
