Baba's Chavadi

Reviewed By Gaurav A - Delhi

Located just next to Dwarkamai, Sai Baba is intimately connected with this place, as he used to sleep here on alternate nights, during the last decade of his life. Inside Chavadi is a large portrait of Baba which was painted by Ambaram from Nausari in Gujarat after Baba had given him darshan in a dream in 1953. The darshan itself is so pious which can't be described in words. Do visit here when you are in Shirdi.

Maruti Mandir

Reviewed By KASIRAO5646 - Hyderabad, India

This Mandir is situated between Dwarkamai and Chavadi, close to the exit Gate No.3. Neither big nor small temple, this attracts devotees of Sai Baba. The Idol of Lord Hanuman is places at the center of the temple and looks very gracious. All devotees of Sai make it a point to visit this temple without exception. We also visited this Hanuman mandir after our darshan of Sai maharaj.

Khandoba Mandir

Reviewed By Munikumar R

The local people here say that before visiting baba samadhi mandir , one should visit khandoba mandir to take blessings as baba when visited shirdi for the first time visited this temple and stayed here for few days.
In general this is like any other normal siva village temple with peaceful environment to sit and relax for some time , it's just on the side of main highway.
Its walkable from baba temple and bus stand , if not take auto for 40 rs. This temple is covered by auto drivers if you take a local site seeing trip with them , they charge 350 rs and take you to the below places.
1) khandoba temple
2) panchamukhi vishnu ganapathi temple
3) eka mukhi datta temple , includes another baba ashram and kanya kumari temple
4) sai heritage village which have old shirdi village recreated with plaster of paris statues and have a huge kids play area , this one charges you 125 per head entry fee
Takes a total of 2 hrs local trip . You can enjoy nice village environment along the drive and get feel of local culture and get some knowledge of local crops etc

Wet N Joy Water Park

Reviewed By jaypatel2106 - Bengaluru, India

This is small and simple pool good enough for all kinda people, family, bachelors, etc. Specially for family as there are three big water pools with rides in it and you can simply leave your kids and enjoy. And the rides for adults also not having long queue. We visited on Sunday and they provided snack (vadapav), lunch (pavbhaji and pulao) and while leaving they gave snack pouches as well all included in adult ticket of Rs.700 and kids ticket of Rs.400. At this price the quality of park + food is value for money.
Overall very good place to hangout.

Lendi Baug

Reviewed By SangeethaAnbalagan - Chennai (Madras), India

On 11th Sep'17, got to visit Lendi Baug at Shiridi. Lendi Baug is a beautiful garden situated inside the premises of Shiridi Baba temple. Sai Baba used to spend a lot of his time here watering the plants daily in the mornings & evenings.
The Neem tree in the garden once provided shade and rest to Baba. There is a marble 'Deepagraha' in the garden where Sai once lit a deepak which burns from dusk to dawn even today. Feeling blessed to spend some time in the garden where Baba walked..
