Shirdi, a place where a saint stayed for nearly all of his lifetime, until 1918, is located in Ahmednagar district and in close proximity to Nasik. This saint is no one but 'Sai Baba', whose holiness is revered by almost all religions, who preached throughout his entire life the universal brotherhood beyond every creed and devotees describe him as the 'Child of God'.

For that reason, disciples of Sai Baba are spread over different religions and states of the country. Millions of people visit Shirdi to seek his blessings and the magnitude of visitors is rapidly increasing setting new records every time. To bear such a giant throng, Shri Sai Baba Sansthan, Shirdi, has kept a keen eye over the comfort of disciplines by providing different facilities. Out of those flairs, a huge temple, built in 1922, housing all necessary infrastructures stands in the focal of Shrdi town.

The temple complex of Sai Baba also includes -

  1. Dwarkamai Mosque, meditation place of Sai Baba where is used to sleep every second night.
  2. Dhuni, literally means timeless flare, is next to the mosque.
  3. Kandoba Temple, Sai Baba's foremost refuge.
  4. Gurusthan
  5. Chavadi
  6. Lendi Baug.
  7. Maruti Temple
  8. Shani Temple, along with Maruti Temple, was built as per the direction of Sai Baba.

Sai Baba, with his teachings of 'Shraddha' meaning faith and 'Saburi' meaning compassion, turned Shirdi into a sacred village. It is no longer a village now; instead Shirdi is eagerly planning to welcome millions of more devotees by the year 2018, 100th death anniversary of Holy Spirit, Sai Baba.  Shri Sai Baba Sansthan, Shirdi Municipal Council and Maharashtra State Government are reciprocally initiating further development projects to handle the throngs of followers.

A maestro airport is also on the top of this agenda. Sai disciplines, spread across the world, are quite excited to see this project come to reality. To gain over this occasion, many giant hospitality players including Taj Gateway, ITC Fortune, Holiday Inn and St.Laurn are setting up properties there that will surely make Shirdi one of the busiest towns in India.
