About shirdi

Located in the district of Ahmednagar in Maharashtra, Shirdi is one of the most significant religious destinations in India. It is just 190 km from Pune and 240 km from Mumbai. The town is known for being the abode of Sai Baba, the great saint who passed away in the year 1918. Though the real name and birthplace of Sai Baba are not known, he is believed to have arrived at Shirdi when he was around 16 years old and started living in the Khandoba Temple. Revered by both Hindus and Muslims, it is unclear which religion he belonged to. The saint spent almost 50 years of his life in this town preaching his famed saying ‘Sabka Maalik Ek’ (one God for all). Sai Baba has been (and still is) worshiped by people from various religions, backgrounds, ethnicities, and countries. The town of Shirdi receives thousands of visitors who come to visit the shrine of Sri Sai Baba and the other attractions like the Dixit Wada Museum, Adul Baba Cottage, Dwarkamai and more. The town of is full of kindness, warmth, and compassion.
