Shiridi Sai Baba, the great saint's temple is located in this town of Shirdi. We reached this town at midnight and we didn't find any trouble in getting a decent room in a hotel. There are plenty of hotels available around the temple. This is one of the famous pilgrim place of Maharashtra and many devotees across the country and from outside visit Baba's shrine. There are many temples in and around Shirdi.
Morning you can have the Arati darshan (holly visit ) at 5 PM. More devotees visit the shrine on Thursday. There is a wale inside the temple campus which was used by Baba to water the plants. Cameras and mobile phones are not allowed inside the temple. Don't forget to take Prasad after your darshan.
After darshan we left Shirdi for another pilgrim place Nashik. On the way to Nashik we found many devotees walking bare footed with saffron cloth on their heads. This is a painful journey performed by many devotees to get the blessings of Baba.
