Baba's Chavadi - Review
At a walking distance from the Sri Sai temple is Baba’s Chavadi. Chavadi literally means a community place for the village and Sri Baba used to sleep here every alternate days. Managed by the Sai trust, the Chavadi is open to public and displays the belongings of Baba.
The Chavadi is divided into two levels. One section has a large portrait of Sri Baba and a wooden bed and white chair that belonged to him. The other section houses the chariot known as Paalkhi in local language.
Every Thursday, a procession from Dwarkamai arrives to the Chavadi and the chariot displays Baba’s photograph, his Paduka (slippers) and the Satka.
The Chavadi gives an insight to the simple living of Sri Sai Baba.

Baba's Chavadi, Shirdi Reviews
Awesome temple definitely we feel good and pleasant place I must suggest everyone to visit this temple. This place is one of the most devotional place in the world. Thursday, Saturday and Sundays are the most crowd people we can see here. Once we get Sai Baba darsan then we will feel it as great experience.
just outside the samadhi temple, you will have chavadi. better to go after visiting the temple and wearing your shoes
This is one of the happiest moments in my life as we have fulfilled one of our dreams lasted over a decade to visit Shirdi. Ashram is too huge and crowded always. Beware about locals who come to you for help as the priority of majority of them is money than a service. Try to sort out things yourself or through PRO inside the Ashram.
Chavadi means village meeting place, office, or court and was the place where taxes were collected, village records kept, disputes settled by the village heads, and visiting officials put up. After Baba's mahasamadhi the Sansthan acquired the Chavadi, and until the late 1930s, used it for storing books and accommodating pilgrims. The village offices have long been relocated and the Chavadi is kept as a shrine to Baba and is open to all.
1) we visited on 5th and 6th sept 2018. 2) photo frame of saibaba is placed inside the chavadi. 3) seperate entrance for male and female. 5) it takes 5 minutes to visit.
