  • Shri Khandoba Mandir or temple is a very famous place for the persons who visit Shirdi . This temple is opposite BSNL telephone exchange . From Sai Baba temple to Bhakta niwas this temple is on right side and beside Sai Hospital . This temple is very much visible from main road . Very calm and quiet place where any devotee can meditate properly . The history of this temple is when Sai Baba came to Shirdi Village no one knew Sai Baba . But Malsapati saw him and invite Sai Baba and addressed Baba " Aao Sai " . Since then Sai Baba named as Sai . This temple is of Malsapati . This is very spiritual place for Hindus .
