The Shirdi Sai Baba Temple is a beautiful shrine nearby the Sri Sai Baba Samadhi. In the center of shrine, there is a huge Italian marble Statue of Sri Sai Baba sitting on a throne. As per legends Sri Sai Baba showed in tiny village called Shirdi at the age of 16 underneath a Neem Tree. This young bearded man was called by a Mahalspathi of a temple as “Sai Baba” (Poor Man). Sri Sai Baba was a man of simplicity and he is a fakir. In the beginning stage, villagers offered foods to this young fakir who lived in silence. Slowly the villagers were attracted by his divine speech and healing power. Thus the tiny village Shirdi became a popular pilgrimage center.

        The place where he was born and stayed before he moved into the Shirdi is still unknown. Sri Sai Baba lived from 1838 till 1918. Around 15th Oct 1918, Sri Sai Baba willingly felt his body and made millions of his devotees cry.  Eventhough Sri Sai Baba is a living spiritual force pulling humans towards him, when he was alive he lived his life in simple way wearing torn Kafni, lying over mat, eating the food he got through begging the villagers etc.

 

Special prayers are offered every Thursday and so the footfalls of devotees on Thursday are really high.
