About Sri Naga Sai Temple

The Hindu temple of Sri Naga Sai is situated at Mettupalayam Road in Coimbatore. A marble statue of Shirdi Sai Baba was installed by Indian guru and Philanthropist, Sathya Sai Baba in 1961 at the temple. This was for daily worship post its establishment in 1942. Naga translates to snake. Why is this temple named Naga then? There is an interesting legend behind this name. It is said that in 1943, Thursday (or ‘guru-vara’ i.e. sacred day for worshipping Sai Baba) evening Bhajan (prayer recital) was going on in full swing at the temple when suddenly a majestic cobra having an unusually big head appered and stood before Sai Baba’s picture in a pose of worship. Meanwhile the ongoing commotion of drum rolls, aartis and lights seem to have no effect on it, as if it was totally engrossed in the music! Devotees around it stood in total surprise and awe and began showering the cobra with flowers. The naga lingered at the same spot for 48 hours and when a photographer came to take his picture, it came out from under the heaps of flowers when devotes started praying. Later it slowly marched out in the bushes and left an ani-hill on the grounds which are considered holy. So now you know why Shirdi Sai Baba is worshipped as Shri Nagasai in Coimbatore. A trust called Shri Naga Sai Trust maintains this temple housing the holy shrine of Sai Baba and also the stick he used(it was brought here from Shirdi).
