The level for devotion by the devotees is astonishingly breathtaking. We visited early morning, and even at that time the queues had started to building. Despite being expat tourists we opted NOT to get into the fast-track lane and instead, as an act of devoutness, we joined the regular queue. It took us almost 2.5 hours to get from the start to actually seeing and witnessing the Holy Shrine.
I entitled this review... 'your devotion will be tested...' and with good reason as this indeed will be put to the test, we are Brits and that being the case every sinew in our body and all our years of socialising has taught us to queue in an orderly fashion and help others in need of our support...
Unfortunately, this is not the case globally, and it is a case of "everyone for themselves". Be prepared to be jostled, pushed shoved, with queue jumping commonplace, the queue also stalled for period of up to 15 mins . It can be very frustrating, particularly when traveling with young children, however one must never lose sight of the sense of occasion, and demonstrate patience, tolerance and piety. I think that is what got me/us through the queuing experience. Also worth pointing out that the queue spans the length and breath of the temple's rooms, once in the final shrine area the pushing and jostling does get even more intense, we traveled there with my wife and I, and two children aged 10 and 8 years, I held on to my daughter's hand tightly (and wife, my son) and had we a plan incase we misplaced each other. At the actually shrine you literally have 3 to 5 seconds before your are ushered to move-on.
Also worth mentioning that you are categorically not permitted to take recording devices (including mobile phones) into the shrine (your are searched), and have to check them into a cloakroom area beforehand... best advice, on the day of your visit best to leave everything at the hotel, or you'll have to queue again.
The whole experience was certainly spiritual, moreover visiting the Sai Baba temple is a reflection of ones own emotions and sensibilities and trying to be the best version of ourselves!

I went to Shirdi, from Delhi with my 70+ parents and 2 kids, aged 13 and 7, thinki g that it is a safe destination to travel to, for ladies.
We had planned a 5 days trip, starting from Shirdi, to trimbakeshwar, then Nashik and then back to
The hotel - Marigold Regency was wonderful- neat, clean, staff helpful , free pick and drop service to the Sai Temple.
The only problem we faced in the whole trip was the taxi that had been arranged through a travel agent.
We arranged it before travelling to avoid last minute confusions but it did not turn out to be so.
The taxi driver was apathetic, had no desire to show us nearby attractions even on repeated requests.
Did not tie the luggage on the luggage carrier, so in effect we travelled in cramped seats despite it being a 7 seater.
He took us to specific shops in shani shignapur and shirdi and compelled us to buy stuff from there, and had no consideration for my elderly parents parking very far away- saving his petrol and creating difficulties for us, which were avoidable.
Even when requested to drive further he refused.
On the third day of the trip, he started harrassing us for extra money- refused to follow the earlier agreed upon itinery and created a lot of stress for me and my parents.
To the extent that eventually we had to change out taxi.
But this experience left a bad taste and made me to feel that even now, single females with/ without kids are not safe to travel.

I visited this temple with my parents and friend. The place is quiet and holy for anyone who knows Baba. It is well known among locals and tourists.
