Baba the great

A small village in Ahmednagar district, Shirdi has become famous all over India on account of its association with the renowned Saint Shri Sai Baba. Pilgrims belonging to all faiths, throng here all the year around.

Shri Sai Baba Sansthan, Shirdi was established in the year 1922 to carry out the noble service of Shri Sai Baba. From the year 1922 to August of 1989 the establishment staff provided various facilities for the devotees. On May 4, 1990 Bhoomi Pujan of 'Sai Baba Bhakta Niwas' was performed. A building to accommodate 3500 devotees, having 560 self-contained rooms and two spacious halls has been constructed.

The Sansthan is publishing various photos and books on Shri Sai Baba in many languages. The trust has started English medium schools three years ago. Scholarships are given to the poor and clever students every year by the Sansthan. The Chairperson and the members of the trust are taking keen interest to provide facilities to the villagers and devotees.

The Mandir is built with stones and Baba's Samadhi is
built with white marble stones. A railing is built in marble around the
Samadhi and is full of ornamental decorations. In front of the
Samadhi are two silver pillars full of decorative designs.
Just behind the Samadhi is Sai Baba's marvelous statue made
of Italian marble which shows him seated on a throne.
This idol was made by late Balaji Vasant.
