Shirdi is a very popular pilgrimage site in Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra, thronged by pilgrims coming from miles across the globe. This is where, an eminent saint, Sai Baba spent plentiful years of his life and attained Samadhi (Highest stage in meditation). His soulful preaching about the existence of one god, who looks over his children irrespective of their religions, left a great impact on his followers.
