The holy town of Shirdi in Maharashtra is associated with the 19th century saint 'Sai Baba'. This small hamlet is located at a distance of 100 kilometers from Nashik. Today, it is a bustling pilgrimage center of India. It is said that Sai Baba entered this village at the age of 16 years. He was first seen under a Neem tree in a self-mortification state. During his stay in Shirdi, which is more than 50 years, he worked for the upliftment of poor and backward classes. He turned this small hamlet into a big pilgrimage site for devotees. Although the early life of Sai Baba was hidden under enigma, he is believed to be an embodiment of Lord Shiva. He died in the year 1918 and his Samadhi is visited by thousands of devotees throughout the year.

Shirdi is a place that mainly visited for Shirdi Baba darshan. To visit the place that Baba lived is great, you will feel his presence and blessing. Apart from that there is not much to visit there. But you can visit Mini Taj mahal, Elora caves in Auragabad, Shani Singnapur, Trimbakeshwar and Sita Gumpha, Godavari river in Nashik which is all a few hours away around there. Very nice places to visit.
