  • It was always great to visit the temple, but the cleanliness of temple has increased. Also surprised to know that for child less than 1 year, pregnant ladies and Senior citizen were getting free pass to avoid long queue and get inside temple quicker. People can get this pass at counter outside Gate No. 2. For senior citizen pass a government recognized I'd with birthdate on it would needed. For small babies no documents asked if baby looks under 1 year.
  • Temple is great. The infrastructure needs up gradation to hold the more influx of people who visit their daily, like water points outside in the town, more clean restrooms for both the genders are needed, touts outside the temple queue needs to be stopped. Lunch available at the premises is awesome, wholeheartedly liked it.
  • A very blissful experience inside the temple. The queue will be very very long during special occasions. Good seating facility in the general queue. There are baby feeding rooms, restrooms in general queue. Everyone has to get a biometric free darshan access card from the counters. Special entry ticket of rupees 200 per person is also available
  • Must visit for All. Good management. Don't fall prey to guides... Walk directly for free pass. Cloak roo. Available in toilet complex. Mobiles and camera not allowed inside. Separate cloak room with Rs 5 per item available at same place.one of your ID card is also deposited with mobile and/or camera.
  • One of the best and foremost pilgrim places in India. I really liked and loved it. Recently i visited that temple where divinity pours. Sai Baba will bless everyone because he belongs to all religions. He existed that's y we can believe him.
