We left Bengaluru at 7:20 pm on the previous day by train (Karnataka Express) to a place called Kopargaon, which is around half an hour drive from Shirdi. We reached Kopargaon at around 2:15 pm. Then we hired a taxi and moved towards Shirdi.
We reached shirdi at around 3pm. The rooms were pre booked (there's literally 100's of lodges in Shirdi), we freshened up and went for darshan, the temple was around 500m from our hotel. As it was off season in Shirdi, we had our darshan very quickly. We came out of the temple at around 4:30pm.
Soon after coming out of the temple we took a shared taxi for Shani shignapur. It took 5 hrs for the complete trip, which includes one hour of darshan. As it was Saturday, it was little bit crowded but we had good darshan and we came back to our taxi and waited for other passengers to come back from the temple.
We reached Shirdi at around 10:30pm we had our dinner in some Andhra hotel ( the prasadalayam closes at 9:30 pm) and headed back to our room. We were exhausted and had a good sleep.
