The place of Sai Baba Shirdi (Maharashtra State) is a very sacred, strong, and significant pilgrimage location in India. One can easily visit this holy spot. It is a well-developed city that is linked by bus routes. There is an important railway station, Kopergaon, though the New Delhi to Bangalore Karnataka Express passes through it. A number of trains also pass via Manmad station from Bombay and Delhi. It's just about 58 km from Shirdi. There are easily accessible buses and taxis from Manmad to reach there. There are arrangements for boarding and lodging at the Shirdi Sai Sansthan, but since the crowd is very large on all days, particularly on Thursdays, it is difficult to get accommodation. In addition, there are a wide number of good hotels to meet the needs of all groups of devotees. In hotels, accommodation places, and private homes, they have to search for the same thing. While there are arrangements at the Sansthan to sell breakfast, lunch, and dinner packs, most people are still due to the heavy rush.
Temple of Samadhi : Sri But The building of the Samadhi Temple began! During Sai Baba's lifetime, with a view to having a Sri Krishna temple. Sai Baba said at a time when the building was almost complete, that he would remain there. So after Sai Baba attained Nirvana (eternal peace) the place was buried with his mortal remains. Afterward, the white marble pavement of the Samadhi was built. In 1954, by the side of the Samadhi, a marble statue prepared by the sculptor Sri Talini of Bombay was installed. Later, the spacious hall opposite the Samadhi was also paved with marble tiles. The people who come for darshan come first into the hall, which is decorated with pictures of Sai Baba's saints and devotees. In a sitting place, the statue of Sai Baba is such that he looks at any devotee who comes to the hall for darshan. The articles used by Sai Baba are displayed in a room on the left side of the hall. Below the rooms on the right-hand side, there is a cellar where valuables are maintained. The first floor has a gallery and there are some offices.
The Masjid Dwarkamayee : This was an old Masjid called by Sai Baba himself as Dwarka Mai. He stayed here all day, sitting on a large stone that is still preserved. Here, too is a portrait of Sai Baba, drawn during his lifetime. Since then the sacred fire) kindled by Sai Baba has continued to burn in front of the image. The Audi, taken out of the ever-blazing, is used as miraculous ash by the devotees.
Chavadi : It is situated just east of Dwarkamai. Each alternate night, Sai Baba used to rest at this spot. Since the days of Sai Baba, there have been a number of portraits of deities seen here. A wooden plank and a wheelchair are also kept here, brought for Baba but never used by Him.
Gurusthane : This is Sai Baba's Guru's house. Sai Baba used to sit here under a neem (margosa) tree, the leaves of which, due to the grace of Sai Baba, lost their bitterness. Incense is burned here in a jar, day and night, in front of the Temple, where the Pindi and Nandi of Lord Shiva are installed of Lord Sai Baba are also held.
About Pandaripuram Temple
Pandharpur, a reverent place located on the banks of the river Bhima, is proud to carry on the traditions of its historical past. Legends have it that Lord Vitthal used to live in this little town with his favorite devotee, Pundalik. In the months of June and July, when the 'yatra' is hosted in the city, Pandharpur is home to the famous Vithoba temple, which attracts a huge number of tourists. It is said that when he was busy working, Lord Vitthal came down to visit Pundalik on Earth. It is said that when he was busy serving his parents, Lord Vitthal came down to visit Pundalik on Earth. Pleased by Pundalik's devotion to his parents, he was blessed by Lord Vitthal and vowed to live forever in the village. It is therefore a highly revered position among Hindus.
This is one of India's two ancient Panduranga temples and is known as Dakshina Pandaripuram. Panduranga, seen here with Rukmini and Satyabhama, steals the heart of any devotee visiting this temple with his handsome looks and 'hands-on-hips' pose. The story goes that Pandaripuram's Lord Panduranga appeared in the dream of Vittalaraya, the chieftain of Vijayanagara who had camped near Tirunelveli on his way to war against the king of Travancore. In the south of India as well the deity expressed His desire to provide darshan and is said to have also provided directions. Vittalaraya came to this village and found the idol of Pandaripuram buried on Porunai's banks. He built the idol of Panduranga and constructed this temple west of the river
Vittalaraya resumed his journey with his battalion, having obtained the blessings of Lord Panduranga, and reached Suchindrum, near Kanyakumari. In a sudden turn of events and much to his joy, the Travancore ruler decided without entering the war field for a favorable settlement. Happy with this fast and optimistic end to his campaign, and as a sign of appreciation, Vittalaraya returned to Vittalapuram's Panduranga temple.
To get the temple back to its glory days, though, much remains to be achieved. The refurbishment is still complete. This requires the building of compound walls. A permanent Bhattar does not exist in the temple. The puja is performed twice with the financial support of a few local families, with the assistance of a temporary Bhattar from the nearby Alukudi Village. The only festivals celebrated are Vaikunta Ekadasi, Thiru Karthigai, and Margazhi. There is not enough money to even buy flowers for the Lord.
