About Shirdi

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.

Shirdi airport to start direct flights to Singapore and Kuala Lumpur soon

The central government is planning to connect small cities to big cities and the initiative taken by the government to start flights from Shirdi Airport to international destinations will be of great convenience for the devotees coming especially for Shirdi temple visit.    Pilgrimage tourism is an important industry in Maharashtra and starting direct flights from Shirdi Airport to international destinations will help in alleviating tourism as well. If you start international flights from cities like Shirdi, Nanded, Kolhapur, then devotees from abroad will visit these cities also. Shirdi Airport has recently started its operations and has been seeing a tremendous increase in tourism. From there, the necessary facilities are available for international air services. Shirdi to Singapore and Kuala Lumpur flights will be rolled out shortly.    Shirdi Airport is located at Kakadi village, about 14 km South-west of the town of Shirdi in Maharashtra, India, which is 15km from the main Shirdi Sai Baba temple and other key religious shrines in the town. The functioning of direct flights to Shirdi from Mumbai and Hyderabad had given a huge tourism boost and it is expected that the recent initiative will also help in promoting tourism to Shirdi.
