Chota Shirdi Sai Baba Temple

History of the temple

Chota Shirdi Sai Baba Temple was originally inaugurated in 2004 with small Baba statue. Another beautiful statue of Sai Baba was installed on Jul 2, 2009. Devotees were actively involved installing th


e 5.5ft. white marble statue of Sai Baba. The temple was constructed on approx. 6,000 sq. ft. built up area.The statue of Baba is very beautiful and resembles the statue in Shirdi. This temple is referred as Chota Shirdi (mini Shirdi). Devotees chose several places to build the temple but, most of them had issues with the land. With the grace of Shirdi Sai Baba, they were able to procure this land for the temple. Temple has some books for the devotees to do parayana.Temple has Chavadi, Dwarakamayi, Samadhi Mandir, Gurusthan, dhuni and nimbar in it's premises.In 2004, Shri Sakthipeedam Sai baba Sansthan purchased this land for Sai worship. At first Gurusthan alone was built and small Sai vigraha was installed and worshipped here.Baba then appeared in the dream of a devotee and thereby instructed the sansthan to construct the present temple and also instructed him to name the temple as “Chotta Shirdi”. Baba himself selected the statue/pratima and accordingly it was installed in this temple.In 2007 November, Boomi Pooja was performed and temple was completed and kumbabishekam was done in February 2009.Around 1000 devotees visit this temple during Thursdays. 40 kgs of rice is distributed for annadanam on every Thursdays. Rama Navami, Guru poornima, Mahasamadhi day are the important functions which is celebrated here.Kuran is played on every Thursdays in this temple. Also Urudu kavali is done on important days.Gurusthan, Chavadi and Dwarakamayi are located in the front side of this temple. A separate Neem tree was planted near the Gurusthan which is considered as Sai Saneeshwara Sannadhi. Those who have Sani dosham come round this tree to get rid of their dosham.It was said that on kumbabishekam day, 3 Garudas came and rounded the gopuram of the temple for some time. Another day during an early morning (during brahma muhurtha time), an unknown old man was seen sitting near the dhuni fire (Considered as Baba) which was captured in the camera which is fixed there.
