With the Divine Grace of Shirdi Sai Baba, He blessed us as His tool to construct this Gurusthan Mandir.
It is Sai Baba who identified a place for His mandir and sent the seller to our team with the intention of selling the land adjacent to existing kalyana mandapam. As this kalyana mandapam is functioning at this location for the past 15 years and the mandir location is very prominent place of landmark and known to everyone in the city.

Land purchased and registered on 19th October 2015.

Received PAN registration from Income Tax Department on 29th January 2016.

Land cleaned and Bhoomi Pooja was performed on 26th January 2016.
Another Pooja was performed on 10th March, 2016 to initiate the construction work of the Sai Baba mandir. Although, Sai Baba’s divine presence was felt in many ways during the Pooja, it was a miracle to have Sai Baba’s appearance in the Jyothi while waving Aarati. Those precious moments were captured in two photographs, in one snap “Sai Baba standing similar to the original rare picture” and the other with “Sai Baba’s face similar to the original rare picture of Sai Baba reading a book”. This was truly a calling from Sai Baba and we were fortunate to have Sai Baba’s approval right in the beginning of this divine journey.
