  4. Hi All,
    I recently (Sep26/27) went to Shirdi with my family. I thought of posting my experience related to Accommodation and dharshan which will be very useful to all devotees.
    We stayed in the Sai Ashram Guest House run by Sai Sansthan Trust. The bookings were made 2 days prior to the journey and luckily the accommodation was available for us. We as a family (4 adultlts,1 Kid- 11 Yrs and 1 Infant) went and booked the room of A/C with Western Toilet facility for old people.
    The rooms were amazing and the services by the Staff members were too good. I could see all smiling faces for the services and requests from us. The cost of the room is 950 including extra mattress. The room is such a big where we all happily stayed. Thanks to all the staff members and trust for maintaining such a clean and pleasant atmosphere. They have Non AC rooms also which comes for Rs 500
    Even they serve breakfast in a packet which has Poori and Side dish with a sweet also. This comes for Rs4 only. Apart from this we also get Lunch and Dinner for Rs 10 for adults and Rs 5 for Kids. Luckily we have that also free on the day we visited as some devotee is sponsoring free for all. Food is very good and hygienic also. Even we have the facility of Coffee, Tea, Biscuits and water bottles available within the Guest house itself.
    They also provide frequent shuttles to Main Temple at regular intervals free of cost which is very helpful.
    Regarding the Dharsha - I booked online for the slot available and took the printout. The entrance was via Shani Gate where we can quickly get Baba's Dharshan.
    Overall the entire trip was amazing, with Bab's Grace and Blessings.
    The website for registering, booking accommodation, dharshan and donation is -
    Please note Photo is mandatory while booking the dharshan, accommodation as it will be validated and verified at respective counters.
    Hope this information is useful and let me know any additional details required.
    Hats off to the Saisansthan Trust and their employees for a great and splendid service.
    Om Sai Ram.
