One of the most sacred towns in India, Shirdi, also known as Sainagar or the Land of Sai, is located in the state of Maharashtra. Considered to be the place where the saint Sai Baba lived till 1918, it houses the great Sai Baba Temple. The temple is the burial site of Sai Baba and holds a lot of importance for devotees from across the country. Entry to the temple is free but to escape the crowd, there are special passes available for a certain amount. Don't miss the evening aarti and also be prepared for a huge rush to enter the temple.
Gurusthan is another significant spot. It is the tree where Baba was often seen meditating. After visiting the tree one can collect Udhi which is a powder given to visitors and devotees. You can also visit Dwarakamayi; situated adjacent to the temple, which is the mosque where Sai Baba lived for 60 years till his samadhi in 1918. Devotees go there to watch Dhuni, the fire that was lit by Baba 100 years ago and is still ablaze.
