About Sai Temple Samadhi Mandir Information-Shirdi
Shirdi Sai Baba Temple Info: The Samadhi Mandir of Shri Sai Baba was constructed by a famous Sai devotee Shreemant Gopalrao. It is said that he wanted to enshrine an idol of Murlidhar there but Sai Baba manifested himself as Murlidhar and the temple became the Samadhi Mandir of Sai Baba or Popularly called as Shridi Sai Baba Temple.
The Samadhi is built with white marble. In front of the Samadhi are two silver pillars adorned with decorative designs. Just behind the Samadhi, you will find a marvelous marble statue of Sai Baba seated on a throne. A silver umbrella stands open above the statue. The front of the Mandir has a spacious assembly hall that can accommodate 600 devotees which showcases different things used by Sai Baba during his lifetime. On the first floor of the Mandir are pictures that depict Baba s life. The day begins at 5 o clock in the morning with Bhoopali, a morning song, and closes at 10 pm after the Shejarati is sung. It is one of the prime tourist attractions in Shirdi and is frequented by numerous tourists all the year round.
