But Shirdi by grace of Sri Sai Baba is well equipped to intake this flow of devotees with the necessary arrangements of accommodation and other infrastructure. You can either choose any cost effective budget hotel or luxury hotel among the various hotels in Shirdi.

Initially Shirdi was accessible only from a very few nearby places like Mumbai and Pune. Now Shirdi is connected with many of other major cities by means of Rail and Road. Apart from the existing Shirdi-Mumbai train service, a new service from Mysore to Shirdi has begun from September 2011. The place is even connected aerially as we have a helicopter service which operates a thirteen seater chopper thrice a week. The helicopter will pick its passengers from Mumbai’s Juhu Aerodrome and set down at Sansthan’s helipad in Nighol village.
