Shirdi Sai Baba Temple Reviews & Ratings
One of the oldest Baba temples in the city and now renovated to a big level. Bit more spacious now on the inside. Neatly planned. One can always find high amounts of people in here. The temple itself is pretty well maintained with tile and granite flooring mixed. Nice ventilation as well with air-conditioning. The area behind the main Baba statue is maintained well too, the place were the holy tree and and two halls are present. The one hall in the bottom has one more Baba statue, kind of like a function hall. Outside that, stairs will lead u to the first floor where there is meditation hall, which is really good, with air-conditioning. There's now also a prasadham/annadhaanam distribution area above the temple separately, where u can sit and eat and is quite spacious too. The street in which the temple is located is still a very busy road and traffic piles up always. So one definitely has to plan parking about your vehicles be it bike or car in some other street or road and better walk to the temple instead. Overall one of the oldest and best Baba temples in the city.
Mylapore, a popular cultural hub and a notable neighborhood of Chennai is regarded as one of the oldest residential localities in the city. The name 'Mylapore' holds religious significance among the lovely local people and the region is the home of several historic and most visited religious sites. It is heavily crowded on Thursdays and during weekends
Calm and peaceful place. I think only in this temple,people can touch saibaba idol.I love this place especially because of this. Thursday will be so much crowd. And on terrace they will provide free food for all devotees.
Ever thought of an evening in a temple? You get yummy hot prasadam. Only if there is a big crowd it's difficult getting a second helping ! Go here Thursday evening for the best prasad in town !
Nice place to pray and have darshan of Sai Baba. There is a meditation room on first floor for undisturbed peaceful prayer. There us big rush of devotees specially on Thursday and festivals. In the backside bhajan room one can sit and sing bhajans. Discourses are done in the left side room. Literature and bhajan CDs are also available in a shop. Visits to Shirdi is also organised from here. There is a separate shop for pooja saamagree and pooja items in the premises.
