It is the main attraction of Shirdi as the temple houses the last remains of Sai Baba. A rich man from Nagpur started the construction of the temple to place an idol of Lord Krishna; however the last remains of Sai Baba were to be placed here as he departed this life in 1918, since then the place holds immense reverence for Sai Baba's devotees from all across the world. The temple is the central point of the Shirdi pilgrimage and people stand in long queues to catch a glimpse of Sai Baba's mortal remains.
