Shirdi Sai Baba Temple - Review
One of the most popular temples in India, dedicated to the Indian saint Sai Baba the Shirdi Sai Baba temple is one of the celebrated temples. The saint who lead an ascetic life, preached the importance of realization of the self.
This particular temple is a 1952 construction by a devotee. It also functions as the headquarters of the All India Sai Samaj. On Thursdays, the temple has special bhajans and functions, given this is the day of the Saint. On other days, it is likely to be less crowded. A fabulous place to meditate, you will find several people here doing some soul-searching here. The entire experience is very satisfying.
Given its location in the heart of the city, the temple can also be easily accessed. The Prasad, a devotional offering made to the Lord typically consisting of food that is later shared among devotees here, is very delicious too. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Chennai itinerary 1 day.

Shirdi Sai Baba Temple, Chennai Reviews
Om Sairam I would request the authorities to take strict steps to increase safety of devotees from the robbers and crooks. On June 29 2018 I saw a middle class parent crying for help after their kids 'gold bangle' was stolen in the heavy crowd. Theifs use the 'Thursday's ' heavy crowd to take valuable stuff from devotees. This leads to high insecurity among the people coming to temple. I personally have lost my new pair of slippers though placed in the temples slipper leaving area because of the heavy crowd. Authorities kindly do take strict actions. People be safe while visiting temple on important occasion and auspicious days.
Really nice place to visit. Good ambience. Very calm place.
On requesting a couple of times We were not given chairs for a person who was recovering from a surgery in his leg, and a senior citizen who couldn't sit down,they were participating in the dooni Pooja.the place was not crowded, nor was it a Thursday, what is the excuse for not being empathetic, the office staff were so rude.we don't Know if the treatment is same for everyone. This feedback should be taken seriously by a true sai bakth and elders and the sick who come there should be treated with respect and care, if it is a place of worship that follows sai' s teachings. Omsairam
Jai sai baba
Good to visit. Shiridi Saibaba Temple in Venkatesa Agraharam, Mylapore, is a device n spiritual place as well for the people, who aspire for such places. Though it is in heart of the city, it is maintained well in a sereen atmosphere. Temple has all aspects simulating Sri Shirdi Saibaba Temple at Shiridi, Maharashtra The Prasad offered by the temple authorities for the poor and visiting devotees is kept at the first floor of the temple. This arrangement is not conducive to differently able people, children, aged, women etc. More over, the place is very narrow and slippery making all possibility to get injured. No parking lot. No wheel chair facility. No clean n tidy rest room. With all the constraints, the place is good to visit.
