Spread over an area of two acres, the Sri Datta Sai Spiritual Centre (SDSSC) is located in Southern Bangalore, 45 kilometres from city centre. This is the biggest Shirdi Sai temple in the South of Bangalore. On the 29th October 2012 in the auspicious Dhanur Lagna Puskaramsa, the Pratisthapana homa was performed as statues of Sri Dattatreya and Sri Shirdi Sai Baba were installed. The 5.5 feet tall Sai Idol is carved out of a single block of Australian marble. Prior to its installation the idol sought the blessings of Sai Baba; it was placed before Sai in Shirdi and sanctified.
With the grace of Shirdi Sai Baba, SDSSC will celebrate the festival of lights - Deepavali. Deepavali is a festival that signifies that one should merge in the inner light of the self.
SDSSC celebrates the Navaratri festival with great devotion. Navaratri is a fascinating glimpse of Indian festivities in all its glory. It is a festival of hope, a faith that no matter how strong the forces of darkness, righteousness will forever triumph and diminish the evil.
