I have visited yesterday to shirdi. There are many trains and other options available to reach shirdi. But according to me, dadar sainagar shirdi express. This train is available on tuesday, thursday and saturday which left from dadar at around 9.45. it reaches to shirdi at 3.45 am and from there you can get auto to reach near sai baba temple. It costs 20 rs. Per share and in one auto which is called tamtam and it can manage to carry 10 people at a time.


I would advise to do hotel booking prior to go to shirdi. This is because if you are going with family on seasonal time you may not get hotel because at that time hotels are full. Once you reach sai baba Temple by catching auto from shirdi station. You can have tea or vadapav at morning time also.


One thing I dont like is you have to get paid pass if you want to take darshan early otherwise you may ending up very irritated due to normal line which is free. There are many vendors you will find near temple who offers you to keep your footwear at their stall. In exchange of this you have to purchase some content which cost around 100. Outside of temple only right side there is stand to keep your footwear free of cost. And beside that there is counter for keeping your mobile phones and it cost rs. 5 per camera phone.


While you are taking darshan, there are people who behave very rudely. I understand they have to manage crowd but still there should be some proper system. People sometimes ending up with the fighting. People are coming for taking darshan and you are behaving like rude which is not acceptable.


There are 2 sai ashram which I found one of 500 rooms and another of 1000 rooms. We had booked room in 1000 rooms ashram which cost 200 per day room. Rooms were in good condition but I found they are not maintaining lift well which created issue for people who are carrying no. Of baggages and they got room on 2 nd or 3 rd floors.


Hot water is always available on room. The best season to visit Shirdi is December or January when winter season is there. From ashram there is bus facility available to reach at sai baba temple at free of cost. There are many oyo hotels available so you can book early to end up at best price of the hotel.


there are many stalls for travel booking. Until the bus is not full they keep on roaming in nashik city itself. The best option is train. There is train available from shirdi to come mumbai at 10.25 pm. Train arrives at 9.45 pm at station. At shirdi station, you can get cold water and also ice cream. There is one restaurant in station premises and one small stall where you can have snacks or other items.


If you are going in season time, I will advise also do reservation before going because travelling in general compartment is not much good. I have travelled in both but tell you something if you are kind of enjoying person you can travel in general compartment. You will see many groups enjoy over there by singing songs of sai baba which is very nice experience.
