The Shri Sai Baba Sansthan Trust manages the highly revered Shirdi Sai Baba temple. The idol of Sai Baba and the Samadhi within the temple is carved out of Italian marble. Covered in royal fabric, wearing a gold crown, and decked with fresh flower garlands, Baba looks completely mesmerizing.
The temple’s interior, as well as its exterior (cone), are gold-plated while the interiors are built with antique stone bricks. Four Aartis are conducted every day (according to the time of day) inside the temple. The rites and traditions followed at the temple date back to Baba’s lifetime.
The Sai Baba Temple in Shirdi receives an average of 25,000 pilgrims every day, with the number increasing to 100,000 during religious holidays. Every Thursday, Sai Baba’s palanquin procession travels from the Samadhi Mandir to Dwarkamai, then to Chavdi, and back to the Samadhi Mandir.
Devotees of all religions are invited to enjoy Darshan in the Samadhi Mandir and free meals in the Prasadalaya. All rituals of the temple are conducted regardless of caste, creed, or religion of the pilgrims since they were one of Sai Baba’s ideal beliefs.
The Shirdi mandir’s Prasadalaya is open to pilgrims every day and serves simple yet fulfilling meals. Prasadalaya is located within the mandir compound and is run by Sai Baba Sansthan. It has large halls that seats 150 people at a time.

Dwarkamai was an ancient mosque in despair when Sai Baba arrived in Shirdi. Baba transformed it into Dwarkamai, demonstrating that there is only one God. Dwarkamai consists of an image of Baba and a large Shila, or stone tablet, on which Baba would frequently sit. It is an important place and should not be missed on this Shirdi one day tour from Mumbai by car.
Another noteworthy aspect of this mosque is the permanent Dhuni, or fire, which was set by Baba while he was still alive. The ash from this Dhuni’s charred wood is heavenly and sacred, and it may cure any ailment suffered by Baba’s devotees and guests. A square stone seat used by Baba for bathing can be found in another part of Dwarkamai.
There’s also a grinding stone and a wooden bowl called Kolamba, which Baba used to store alms collected from the community. Baba would affectionately refer to Dwarkamai as his mother because he felt satisfied and joyous while seated here.
Dwarkamai is most likely the only mosque with a temple! As soon as one enters this mosque, they are overcome with Sai Baba’s holy spirit and bestowed with his blessings. The remarkable and overwhelming positive environment is so relaxing and serene that one may feel their spirit being cleaned of any anxieties, uncertainties, and negativity.
- Must See / Things to Do: Witness the treasured remnants of Sai Baba’s life.
- Timings: Open on all days of the week from 05:00 AM to 12:00 PM and 04:00 PM to 09:00 PM
- Entry Fee: Free
Chavadi is a village meeting place, office, or court where taxes were collected, village records were preserved, conflicts were decided by village leaders, and visiting officials resided.
Due to leaking walls, the Dwarkamai mosque where Baba used to dwell in Shirdi became unsuited for giving shelter to him during the monsoons. As a result, his devotees compelled him to leave the mosque and relocate to the Chavadi out of pure love and concern for Baba. Soon after, Baba began spending alternate nights at the Chavadi, and the site was sanctified by his presence and regular aarti offerings in his honor.
Sai Baba spent many treasured moments of his last decade at the Chavadi. Following Baba’s Mahasamadhi, the Sansthan purchased the Chavadi and utilized it for book storage and pilgrim accommodation until the late 1930s. The village offices have since been relocated, and the Chavadi is maintained as a Baba shrine that is open to anyone.
It presently holds a picture of Sai Baba by Amabaram, a Gujarati artist from Navsari. It is thought that he painted it following a visit from Baba in one of his dreams. Shirdi villagers eventually carried the picture to Chavadi.
- Must See / Things to Do: Spend time at the spot where Sai Baba lived and the tomb of his Guru.
- Timings: Open on all days of the week from 05:00 AM to 10:00 PM
- Entry Fee: Free
Gurusthan is next on our one day trip to Shirdi from Mumbai. Gurusthan literally means “seat of the Guru.” It is both where Baba spent the majority of his time when he first arrived in Shirdi and where, according to Baba, his own Guru’s grave is located by the neem tree. As a result, Gurusthan is one of the most prominent locations in Shirdi. According to an old lady, an underground tunnel or corridor is running from beneath the Neem tree to the location of Dwarkamai.
The enormous neem tree is the first item that strikes the devotee’s sight at Gurusthan. When Baba remained beneath this tree for a few years, it provided him with shelter. Though its leaves are notoriously unpleasant, neem has several therapeutic benefits. Some people, however, have stated that the leaves of one of the branches tasted delicious. It was a sign of Baba’s mercy to them, while others saw it as proof of the tree’s extraordinary sacredness.
In addition to the neem tree, Gurusthan now has a pair of marble Padukas on a pedestal, a ‘Shivalinga,’ and a statue of Baba. The statue, sculpted by the grandson of the Samadhi Mandir monument’s artist, was presented by Y. D. Dave and put in 1974. Other items present at Gurusthan were installed during Baba’s lifetime.
