Places of Worship

pGURUSTHAN
Place of the Guru
Gurusthan is the place where Sai Baba first manifests himself under a sacred neem tree in Shirdi as a boy of 16 years. This place is believed to be the Gurusthan (seat of the teacher) of Sai Baba, hence the name. The Neem (Margosa) tree at the Gurusthan symbolizes the loving grace that Sri Sai showers upon all those who seek refuge in him. Padukas of the lord are installed at the foot of the Neem Tree.
 
   
pDWARAKAMAI
Also known as Masjidmai
Dwarakamai is the masjid where SaiBaba lived during his sixty years’ stay inShirdi. He used a piece of sack-cloth for his seat and a bolster to support his back.  To ward off cold, he always sat in front of the Dhuni (Sacred Fire) which he kept ever burning. The ash from this fire was called Udi and Baba distributed it freely to uplift the devotees both worldly and spiritually.

Baba’s place of penance and paradise
Lendi Gardens assumed spiritual prominence as a place, where Sai Baba meditated for a few hours every day. The garden is called Lendi, as it is named after a stream which sprung out when Baba dug a well for drinking water. The well still remains and is called ‘Baba’s Shivdi’. Baba lit a lamp in earthenware and watered plants daily.The huge Neem tree inside the garden premises provided shade and rest to Sai Baba during his lifetime.
