Shirdi Tourism & Travel Guide

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.

80/3, Maharashtra State Highway 10, Mauli Nagar, Shirdi, Maharashtra 423109, India
Samadhi Mandir- This is where Shirdi Baba's mortal remains are kept. When you enter the Samadhi complex, don't forget to have a look at the wall in the enclosure before entering the sanctum sanctorum. This has all the rare photographs and paintings of the devotees of Shirdi Sai Baba. It takes anywhere from half an hour to 5- 6 hours depending on the rush. Dasara, Diwali, New year, Gurupoornima, Ramanavami, Summer Vacation time witness particularly heavy crowds.Dwaraka Mayi- This according to me is really special as Baba spent his whole life in Dwaraka Mayi. He said that stepping into the Dwaraka mayi will remove all your afflictions. As soon as you enter, there is a dhuni (sacred fire) burning continuously from the time Baba lit it.

But regardless, Bombay’s ethos lies in its biggest railway station - Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, in people-watching and eating bhelpuri by the iconic arch of the Gateway of India and in the exquisite Taj Mahal Palace, that holds a decade worth of stories about both Bombay and Mumbai. A few other places to visit in Mumbai city are Nariman Point - a legion of office blocks in the heart of the city and the Prince of Wales Museum for its eclectic architecture.
