Attraction details
Reviewed 4 November 2011

I had a very good experience in the Sansthan where the queue was well organized and the movement was quick enough to get Sai Baba's darshan. Visit during the Kakkad Aarathi time, it has been one of my best experiences.

I have been going to Shirdi for years and I love this place. Because of increased crowds there is less freedom to go to the different places Baba went to and spent time at. Not that long ago it was easy to go to these places any time of day or night. More difficult now, but Baba's presence is still very strong.

After having darshan of gajanan maharaj & visiting anandsagar in shegao, we started for shirdi by bus (2 by 2) at 11.00 pm & reached at 7 am in shirdi. We booked a lodge very near to the gate no 3 of temple, & after freshup, moved for darshan at 8.30am. We kept the camera, mobile, valets in room only as they are not allowed inside premise. It was only less than 5 min walking distance to reach the temple. There was a big line but it was moving fast. Sitting arrangement was there beside the queue where u can take rest. Stalls selling fast food & even milk for children were available in queue. We found special arrangements like VIP darshan for old peoples & other needy ones. One can have darshan of glowing face of Sai Baba from long away in the huge hall. There were 4 lines for darshan near the idol, 2 central lines having U turn on reaching the front of idol & remaining 2 going by the side of idol leading to the back. It is better to stand in the side lines so that u can namaskar the foot impression made, & have longer & nearer darshan of Sai Baba. We were lucky to complete darshan by 10.30 am & then after returning to room & having little breakfast, we headed for Shani shingnapur. Local sumo was available @ Rs 60/person for covering 60km in 1.30hrs. On reaching there, we found many peoples taking bath & wearing saffron coloured cloth (available with prasad) before having darshan. The queue finally reached to the idol of Shani Maharaj with no shed above & pandits were helping devotees to offer oil on idol. We returned to Shirdi at 4.00 pm & then moved to bhandara for lunch around 1 km from temple. Amazing arrangement, thousands of peoples taking lunch at a single time, cleanliness & hygiene maintained throughout. First take coupons from counters outside @ Rs 5/person, & then enter the huge dining hall. By 5.30 pm, we were in our room taking rest & at 7.00pm, we took our sleep coach bus for hometown, Nagpur, Maharashtra. Overall, it was a wonderful experience.

We reached Shirdi in the afternoon and stood in the queue. It took about two hours to get the darshan of Shri Saibaba. It was a thursday and many people were there to get the darshan. We gave some offerings which the volunteers there took and put it on the baba samadi and gave back to us. On the way back we bought some photoes of sai baba and also ate in a nearby restaurant.
