Five Places A Person Must Visit in Shirdi

Five Places A Person Must Visit in Shirdi

1)Sri Sai Baba Samadhi Mandir

Sai Baba attained mahasamadhi on October 15, 1918. Before his death, he said, Do not think I am dead and gone. You will hear me from my Samadhi and I shall guide you.The millions of devotees who keep his image in their homes, and the thousands who throng to Shridi every year, is a testimony to the greatness and continuing popularity of Sai Baba of Shirdi.

2)Shri Saibaba Sansthan Temple

As in India & abroad many Saibaba Temples have been built up by many private trusts. These temples carry out daily temple pooja as per their own schedule. Shri Saibaba Sansthan Trust, Shirdi has it’s daily programme schedule carried out during the days of  Saibaba. 

3)Baba's Chavadi

Though apparently and formally Baba used to go to the Chavadi. In his super conscious state he was never asleep and used to tell his devotees that in his everlasting awareness he will always protect his devotees who were asleep at night.

Chavadi means “village office”, and was the place where taxes were collected, village records kept and visiting officials put up. After Baba’s mahasamadhi the Sansthan acquired Chavadi, and until the late 1930s, used it for storing books and accommodating pilgrims. The village offices have long been relocated and Chavadi is kept as a shrine to Baba and is open to all.

4)Dwarkamai Masjid

Arriving at the mosque for the first time, you may be rather surprised. Was this simple, unadorned structure really the home of “God on earth?” Was this really the centre from which so many miraculous events sprang? Could such a modest building have been the scene of the highest spiritual instruction that flowed forth in almost as many different forms as the number of visitors seeking it?

5)Dixit Wada Museum

Showcasing a number of black and white pictures of Sai Baba with his disciples, the Dixit Wada Museum will appeal to the devotees of Sai Baba. The museum also displays a number of personal belongings of the saint, like his robes, pipe, leather footwear, gramophone records and cooking utensils. With no big crowds or queues to deal with, you can browse around the museum with leisure. Set up by Kakasaheb Dixit, the museum was established on Ram Navami in the year 1911 with Baba's permission.
