It has a huge port and is commonly referred to as the pearl area, which is famous for its pearl town.

Endowed with serenity and spirituality in its environment, this is a remarkable attraction visited annually by thousands of wanderers. People , particularly Sai Baba’s ardent followers, never forget this.

  •  Shri Sai Baba Sansthan Temple:

It is the most visited shrine in Shirdi and a renowned one. It is devoted to Sai Baba, Shirdi’s presiding deity, and has beautiful interiors carved in a labyrinthine way. This holy shrine lures Shirdi throngs of devotees from all over the world.

In Shirdi, Samadhi Mandir is a notable shrine. This humongous temple is dedicated to Sai Baba, and was designed by Gopal Rao, a multimillionaire. Samadhi Mandir ‘s fascinating structure stands exactly in that location, which the lord himself had previously tended as a garden. This place is often frequently visited, adorned with tranquilly and a spiritual ambience.

Literally Chavadi translates into village office. When Sai Baba arrived at Shirdi he preferred Chavadi as a place to rest at night whenever he walked out to collect alms for a stroll. He usually came to Chavadi for sleep on alternate days and when his devotees came to know about this, they all started performing aarti during the night. C The idea of Sej (evening aarti) came by witnessing this existence.

  • Ellora caves: 

These 34 monasteries and temples were dug side by side in the wall of a high basalt cliff, not far from Aurangabad, at Maharashtra, extending over more than 2 km. Ellora, with its continuous series of monuments that date from A.D. 600 to 1000, revives the ancient Indian civilisation.

Not only is the Ellora complex a rare artistic development and technical exploit, but it reflects the spirit of tolerance that was characteristic of ancient India, with its sanctuaries dedicated to Buddhism , Hinduism and Jainism.

Not only do the Ellora Caves bear witness to three great religions (Buddhism, Brahminism and Jainism), but they also demonstrate the characteristic spirit of tolerance of ancient India, which allowed these three religions to set up their sanctuaries and their societies in a single location, thereby strengthening their universal value.

Ghrushneshwar temple is the last of the revered Hindu Dwadash (twelve) Jyotirlinga shrines in India. The red stone structure of the temple, consisting of a five-tier ‘shikhara’ constructed somewhere in the 18th century, is the smallest ‘jyotirlinga’ temple in India. According to one of the Padma Purana legends, Lord Shiva remained in the form of a ‘linga’ at the request of his most devoted lady, Ghrushna.

In the foregoing period, Ajanta Ellora Caves have always been known as the gems reflecting Indian heritage and the amazing artistry that existed. These tourist attractions are composed of 64 rock-cut caves, located close to Aurangabad city.Today, Ajanta and Ellora Caves are a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and are in several travelers’ wishlist.

The Temple of Grishneshwar Jyotirlinga is situated in the Village of Verul, about 30 km from Aurangabad. Pretty close to the temple are the famous Ellora Caves. This sacred temple is an exemplar of pre-historic art and architecture. The entire temple building is composed of red rocks. History says Bhosale found a treasure in an ant hill earlier by a devotee of Shiva.

The Maha Ganpati Temple is very close to the middle of the town of Ranjangaon. During the rule of the Peshwas, the Temple was erected. Sardar Kine constructed the temple. The Garbhagriha, the sanctum to house the swayambhoo statue, was designed by Peshwa Madhavrao.The Maha Ganpati at Ashtavinayak is Lord Ganesha’s most powerful portrayal. They show Maha Ganpati as having ten weapons.

Riddhi and Siddhi sit upon and surround the deity on both sides. The deity’s trunk turns to its left. There is a local myth that Mahaganpati ‘s true statue is concealed in some vault and that this statue has ten trunks and twenty arms. You can see old temple pillars in the coumpound of the temple.

Renuka Sanctuary: Spread over 400 hectares of wood and grassland surrounding the holy and picturesque Renuka lake, despite its limited scale, this Wildlife Sanctuary harbours many species of deer such as Chital, Sambhar and Barking Deer. Also found here are the endangered Kaleej pheasant, and the more common Red Jungle fowl. The temple and the Lake Renuka draw visitors from far and close.

As none of the houses have doors, Shani Shingnapur village is an interesting village. The villagers’ conviction is that they will be shielded from all evil by their Lord Shaneshwara.The lord ‘s picture is large and consists of black stone. There are only male devotees permitted to worship in the temple. The devotees should first take their baths in the public bathrooms and then pray with a wet dhotis without any tops.

Home to Sri Sai Baba’s spiritually important temple, an Indian Saint known for his simplicity, instruction, and the mystical dictum of “Shraddha” and “Saburi,” which implies confidence and perseverance, Shirdi is one of India’s most visited pilgrim centres.
