At Shirdi, wait for a brief darshan at Samadhi Mandir , the shrine of Sai Baba where his mortal remains were interred. Next to the shrine is the peaceful Masjid where Sai Baba spent most of his life. The sacred fire called dhuni still burns here and its ash or udhi is smeared on devotees. The Chavadi is a small building in Shirdi where Sai Baba used to spend every alternate night. Abdul Baba, was a famous disciple of Sai Baba. Baba is said to have frequented this house and several items used by Sai Baba and his disciples have been put on display for the tourists. It is located opposite the Chavadi. Lendi Baug is a garden that was made and cared for by Sri Sai Baba. Subsequently, a lighthouse was constructed at this place where a lamp is kept burning throughout the day and night as a mark of respect to the Baba.
