Shirdi
 
Shirdi 1 Sai temple of Shirdi is among the top pilgrimage sites of the world. Shirdi is flocked by devotees and curious tourists who journey to this holy land of Shri Saibaba. Sri Sai Baba, a personification of spiritual perfection and an epitome of compassion , lived in the little village of Shirdi, based in the Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra and located on the latitude 19?45 N and longitude 74?25 E. Like most of the perfect saints he left no authentic record of his birth and early life before arriving at Shirdi. No body knows weather Baba was Hindu, Muslim Or Christan . So people of all religion visit shirdi.

The temple premises is situated in the heart of Shirdi village and the temple complex is spread in approximately 200sqmts. On an average there is an inflow of over 40,000 devotees which reaches to a million during festivals. The temple has various important sacred sites linked with Shri Saibaba. These sites include KhandobaTemple, Gurusthan, Samadhi Mandir, Dwarkamai, Chavadi and Lendi Gardens. Go through the road map of Shirdi Sai Baba and explore the Sai land.

Samadhi Mandir
Samadhi Mandir of Shri Sai Baba was build by a millionaire from Nagpur in 1917-1918, a famous Sai devotee Shreemant Gopalrao Buti. Gopalrao wanted to keep an idol of Murlidhar here. However, Baba himself became Murlidhar and the Mandir became the Samadhi Mandir of Baba. The Mandir is built with stones and Baba's Samadhi is built with white marble stones. A railing is built in marble around the Samadhi and is full of ornamental decorations. In front of the Samadhi are two silver pillars full of decorative designs. Just behind the Samadhi is Sai Baba's marvelous statue made of Italian marble, which shows him seated on a throne. This idol was made by the late Shri Balaji Vasant Talim. This statue was installed on 7th October 1954. Above the statue is an open, silver umbrella. The front of the Mandir has an assembly hall where about 600 devotees can be accomadated. Here is a showcase where various things handled by Baba are kept. On the first floor of the Mandir are pictures that depict Baba?s life.
The daily routine of the temple starts at 5 o'clock in the morning with Bhoopali, a morning song, and closes at 10 o'clock in the night after the Shejarati is sung. Only on four occasions the temple is kept open overnight i.e. on Gurupoornima, Dassera, Ramnavmi and New Year Eve. Every Thursday and on each festival, a Palakhi with Baba's photo is taken out from the temple.
Dwarkamai
Shri Sai Baba came to Shridi with a marriage procession. He stayed at Dwarkamai till the very end of his life. Dwarkamai is situated on the right of the entrance of Samadhi Mandir. Here he solved problems of the people, cured their sickness and worries. Before Baba's arrival in Shridi, Dwarkamai was an old mosque in a dilapidated condition. Baba turned it into Dwarkamai and proved that God is one. The first level of Dwarkamai has a portrait of Baba and a big stone on which Baba used to sit. This level has two rooms. One contains the chariot and the second a palkhi. Just in front of the room where the chariot is kept is a small temple. A saffron flag flies over it. The second level of Dwarkamai has a square stool made of stone, which Baba used for taking a bath. The main attraction of this place is the oil painting of Shri Sai Baba sitting in a carved wooden shrine. This level also has the grinding stone and the wooden vessel called Kolamba in which Baba used to keep the Bhiksha brought from the village.
Gurusthan
Sai Baba first came to Shirdi in the form of Bal Yogi - a child ascetic. He was first spotted seated under a Neem tree. This place came to be known as Gurusthan. The Gurusthan was renovated on 30th September, 1941. After this the present temple was built. There is a small shrine in Gurusthan. On a elevated platform of this shrine a big portrait of Baba is placed. On the side is a marble statue of Baba. In front of the portrait is a Shivling and the Nandi. Photos of twelve Jyotirlingas are also kept in the temple. The branches of the Neem tree have come out through the roof of the temple. At a short distance lies Baba's CHAVADI.
Chavadi
Baba used to sleep here every alternate day. The Chavadi is divided into two parts. One part of the Chavadi has a large portrait of Baba along with a wooden bed and a white chair belonging to him. There is a cottage of Abdul Baba, an ardent devotee of Shri Sai Baba, in front of the Chavadi. The Lendi Baug was looked after by Abdul Baba. There are photos and various things which were handled by Sai Baba and Abdul Baba in the cottage. There is a Maruti Mandir located at some distance from the cottage of Abdul Baba. This mandir was visited by Baba for the sat-sang with Devidas, a Balyogi, who lived at the Mandir ten to twelve years before Baba arrived. There are also temples of village deities like Shani, Ganpati, and Shankar to be visited.
Lendi Baug
At some distance from Gurusthan there is the Lendi Baug. This Baug was made and watered daily by Baba himself. It got its name from a Nalla (a drain) which used to previously flow there. Baba used to come here every morning and afternoon and rest under a Neem tree. Baba dug a pit, 2 feet deep, under the Neem tree and kept a Deep(earthen lamp) lit in that pit. One octangular Deepgriha called Nanda Deep has been built in marble stone in memory of this place. It constantly burns in a glass box. On one side of the Deepgriha is a Peepal tree and on the other side is a Neem tree. Some distance away is a Datta Mandir below an Audumbar tree. In the Mandir there is a statue of Datta built in marble stone. The statue of Datta was installed on 6th December, 1976. Just behind the Datta Mandir is a Samadhi of the horse, Shyamsundar which belonged to Baba and which used to bow to him. Lendi Baug also has a well which was dug by Baba and his devotees. At the entrance of the Baug are the Samadhi's of ardent Sai devotees Tatya Kote Patil, Bhau Maharaj Kumbhar, Nanavalli and Abdul Baba.
Khandoba Mandir
This temple is located near Shree Saibaba Hospital on the Nagar-Manmad road. When the marriage party of Chand Patil's wife's nephew came to Shirdi. Shree Saibaba who had accompanied this marriage party, alighted with others in the open ground of this temple. The Pujari (prist) of the temple "Malsapathi" welcomed this Young Ascetic with the words "Ya Sai" ("Come Sai")
Museum
Valuable things used by Baba during his time are drinking vessel(Tumbrel), Babas Paduka (footprints), Baba's Satka, Grinder, Gramophone, Bowl Of Hukka, Horse bridle-habiliments, the Kaphani and Sandals worn by Shri Sai Baba and original Photographs of Lord Sai. All these valuable things are kept in the museum for Sai devotees.
