Shirdi is essentially a small overgrown village, famous because of the saint Sai Baba. Sai Baba came to Shirdi in 1858 and, as devotees say, attained samadhi (salvation) in 1918 after spending 60 years here. Even today his presence here is very real. Indeed, Shirdi is Sai Baba, for without him this would have been just another little village.The size of this small town belies its massive importance as a Sai pilgrimage site and the number of devotees it plays host to. The town has a plethora of holy places linked to Sai Baba.
Shirdi is the place where Sai Baba lived for many decades and finally attained samadhi. Mostly visited from September to November, Shirdi's has quite a few well known religious spots. A couple of prominent ones are Sai Baba temple and Dwarakamayi. The Sai Baba Temple houses the grave of Sai Baba. The tentative timings at the temple are from 4 am to 10 pm. Dwarakamayi is a mosque where Sai Baba stayed for over half a century. Over 100 years ago, he lit a holy fire here, which is still being preserved by devotees.

Distances can seem exaggerated in Shirdi. What is referred to as the other end of the town is, in reality, a 10-min walk away, through narrow lanes fringed by small stalls selling flowers, sweets, trinkets and other items that devotees offer to Sai Baba. There are even Tibetans here selling woollies. Music blares from almost every stall; devotional and popular Bollywood songs mingle to create a most eclectic medley as one walks down the streets.
