They say if you have faith, one can achieve just about anything. Five years ago, I wouldn’t have believed you if you told me that I would get the opportunity to keep going back to Shirdi. Perhaps it’s a result of my faith, that I would come to Shirdi to pray for something, and Baba would keep fulfilling my wishes so that I could keep coming back to Shirdi for his darshan. Each time my wishes are fulfilled, and I returned to Shirdi, my faith in Baba continues to increase.
Best time to visit
You can visit Shirdi all year round. But to make the most of your trip, I recommend avoiding the summer months.
Things to do
If you are travelling with your family, you can head to Wet'n'Joy Water Park for a break between darshan.
Spend your evenings at Lendi Baug in the shade of the trees
You can head to Dixit Wada Museum to get a glimpse of the personal effects of Sai Baba.
Where to eat
Head to the Madras restaurant near Dwarkamai for excellent south Indian food.
The tea and milk stalls opposite the Sai Baba mandir are a must-visit.
There are a number of sugarcane juice stalls between Shani Shignapur and Shirdi. Make sure to quench your thirst at one of these small stalls.
