A distinguished pilgrimage destination in Maharashtra, Shirdi is visited by streams of worshippers every year seeking the blessings of the almighty. Shirdi is world renowned for being home to the Shri Saibaba Sansthan Temple. People visit the shrine irrespective of their caste, creed and religion. The sights of devotees humming chants, ringing temple bells and lightened lamps make this temple a heaven like place.
The story behind Sri Sai Baba is that at the beginning of eighteenth century, a young bearded man took shelter in a mosque, in Shirdi Village. He was a complete stranger for the locals of the village. Soon Sai Baba’s simple living and his principles of love and faith in humanity won the hearts of the villagers. He became popular with the name of ‘Baba’ and people started following his footsteps. Sai Baba did not belong to any tradition. He devoted his complete life to all mankind on the path of goodness, love and understanding.
Apart from this, Sri Sai Baba Samadhi Mandir also remains popular in Shirdi as this temple houses the sacred body of Sai Baba. People flock in thousands here to pay respect to the saint who always spread the message of unity and humanity.
