Abode of the charismatic Shri Saibaba, Shirdi is the mystical town fragrant with the devotional intensity that sees devotees from across the world thronging to this small hamlet.
had a good darshanam....
Be careful of the flower vendors..... They commit anything to everything and sell you recycled flowers....
Sai Seva Sansthan's - Sai Ashrams are the best accommodation in the town. Damn cheap. World class Hospitality. Free bus service. Free meal. Beware of vendors, drivers... Babaji ki Jai ho!
If u wanna see kakkad darshan early ruse by 11 pm n start off to gate 2 n wait in line to c d darshan @ 4AM! Best time!
People each one say that they buy u archana stuff for less cost but no! Even your hotel guys have link with the sellers! Best bargain!
Sure to have a positive start in life once you come here! Seeing the idol of Sai Baba here! What a moment! Must visit place!!!
Once you are inside there are 3 lines which are separate for men and women . try and get to the line which is closest to the centre so that you are able to see properly even if you are behind
For Aarti. Reach the place at least 60-90 min early. The Morning Aarti queue starts at 2 !
Try and visit during the week since the crowd is almost half of weekends and you get a good darshan. Avoid holidays also
Never buy the elaborate list of prasadam from here. Most of it is not allowed inside. Just a pack of 5 essential prasad and a bunch of flowers is enough.
Go for the 04.30 hrs "kakad aarti" here.. It is one of the must things to do... Even if you aren't the religious kind you will love the atmosphere for sure....
Don't forget to take Bhabhuti (holy ash) near gate 4.
Great place and what to say. Book online for darshan or aarthi for hassle free darshan. Best place to stay here at affordable cost is dwaravati
Queue for the Kakad Aarti starts as early as 2AM. Don't be deceived by the lack of crowd at the Gate. Entry through Gate 2 and passes through a multi-storey building.
Start in the Q at 01:00AM to watch the holy aarti and snan..
Awesome moment when we are near samadhi mandir... Got to know that if we plan for aarti and darshan can make online booking previously 1week before.I should try that next..Hope to see baba again ASAP
Om sai nathaye namah. Holly place,baba ki jai ho. Be carefull from vendors & thiefs. Think wisely before buying anythng frm vendores,enjoy.

1.Don't buy the cloth from outside the temple it's available inside for Rs.30 where they charge u 300 to 600 Rs. outside. 2. Coconuts are not allowed inside the temple so don't buy outside.
Guards are pushing even can't do darshan is for this I waited in a queue for 4 hours and travel almost 8 hours.... God we r here for darshan not to get pushed by guards
You get 1 ladu packet per person if you stand in Darshan Q. Else you can buy 1 ladu packet per person from Sai Prasad No. 2 bldg for Rs. 20/-. Only 1 person though!
If you really want an Aarti, thwy take VIP pass for 100 and talk to a guard called Amol and he will get u in..take vip pass only for 100 for aarti as well.Follow @photokatha for more tips
After new rules, in the mukh darshan area you wont be allowed to sit and wait for aarti to start. Just before one hour they will remove you frok that area. Aarti happens only through Gate no.2 .
Got Shree Sai Baba Darshan in just less dan hour :) :) best time to for Darshan in Monsoon (Jun-Aug).
Be here by 8 or 9 am and you can complete your darshan by 10.30.
Must visit place, do try the filter coffee at hotel sai krishna after your darshan. Its awesome!
Om Sai Nathay Namah! Beware of pickpocketers.. Om Sai Nathay Namah!
Average queue time takes 1.5 hours so carry water with you. Leave mobile in hotel to avoid inconvenience. Must visit museum & you would be pleasantly amazed.
Beware of agents who are car parking space

Best darshan time is during the early dawn whn Baba is given bath.Its 4.15am-5am.All the aartis r performed.Bt only limited devotees are allowed in the temple.Queue for it starts from 1am from Gate2.

Leave your mobile phone in your hotel. In case u bring it to the temple, leave in the cloak room opposite to the temple.No ladies purse alld
It's always been a holy divine place for me. If you visit SAI BABA Samadhi Mandir with faith & patience, SAI Saint will fulfill all your wishes. "Om Sai Ram"
Timing 4.30am to 10.30pm. Visit the other small temples (chavdi, dwarka mata)
Jai Sai Baba
Nice behavior of security guards. Very helpful. Don't listen any of the shop keepers or hawkers over there. They will misguide you and cheat you. Approach security people if u need anything.
Dont forget shani temple in way to pune back from shirdi
Just do what youu planned for. Dont listen to the hawkers and other vendors. Security guards generally help with correct information.
