Dwarkamai Masjid, Shirdi

4.7
#4 of 19 in Things to do in Shirdi
See the perpetual fire at Dwarkamai Masjid, a temple representing a blend of Hindu and Islamic influences, and a major shrine for followers of Sai Baba of Shirdi, an early 20th-century spiritual master and "satguru." An abode of Lord Baba, who was known for his soup kitchens, the spiritual site features some period cooking items, including grinding stones and storage vessels. In the courtyard, a large, colorful statue of Sai Baba perched over a cauldron stands on a pedestal, marking the spot where he used to prepare food for the masses. The "dhuni" lit by Sai Baba still burns, and you can line up to receive a blessing.
