Shirdi Sai Baba Mandira, Avalahalli, Dodballapur Road, Bangalore.

Aum Sai Ram

Kindly see the Complete set of 34 Snaps of this temple
before reading the Description of this Temple.

Sai Baba Mandira, Avalahalli, Dodballapur Road, Bangalore

This is my Third Pilgrimage to visit Shirdi Sai Baba Temples. After my successful visits at Bangalore on 27th June 2010 & at Hyderabad on 3rd August 2010, I was Blessed again by Shirdi Sai Baba to visit some more temples of his at Bangalore.

I have the habit of visiting Sai Baba at Shirdi once in every now & then. But Baba wanted me to discover various places of his worship & thus this Pilgrimage to visit some of his temples got started by me. As said, I successfully completed 2 pilgrimage to some Sai Temples in Bangalore & Hyderabad. Kindly check out the details of temple visited at the end of this Article.

I was in Chennai for a family re - union during the 1st week of October, but due to the busy schedule I could not move out to visit Sai Baba. So after coming back to home, I decided to go on my 3rd Pilgrimage to visit some temples in Bangalore.

After initial planning & by Baba's blessings, I came out with some temples at yelahanka, Kodigehalli, Yeshwantpur in Bangalore City Limits.

My Day started early in the morning by 7:00am & the first temple to be visited today was Shirdi Sai Baba Mandira at Avalahalli near Yelahanka. This temple is around 23 kms from Bangalore city & 4 kms from Yelahanka Town. It is on the Dodballapur Road beside BMS Engg. College. Another easiest Landmark to remember will be M H Gowda Indian Oil Petrol Bunk which is just opposite to Sai Baba Temple & is towards the right hand side when travelling from Yelahanka to Dodballapur.

Gopuram in the temple premises is visible from some distance & it is very easy to find out. By the time i reached the temple, the Abhishekam to Baba was completed & Baba was getting dressed. I had to wait till 8:15am to get the first glimpse of Sai Baba.

The temple complex has Seperate entrance each for Shirdi Sai Baba & Sri Abhaya Anjaneya Swamy the 2 residing deities of this temple. There is also a Statue of Ganesha, Subramanya Swami, Dattatreya & Navagraha.

The Marble statue of Sai Baba is really beautiful sitting on a wonderfully designed Simhasan. Sai Baba's Samadhi & Sai Paduka are placed in front of Sai Baba Statue. Baba was dressed in Complete Red & he was looking really cute & handsome. The Back ground wall of behind the Statue is covered with Black Granite & Baba's Image gets reflected like mirror on it.

A Beautifully Hand Crafted Palki of Sai Baba has been placed in front of Baba & the Palki Utsav takes place on Thursday & special Days. Nandi has been placed next to Palki facing Sai Baba.

Prana Pratista of all the Dieties were performed between 24 Oct 2007 to 26 Oct 2007 & the temple was open to Sai Devotees there after.

Special Abhishekam, Alankaram, Aarthi & Puja are performed Daily to Sai Baba & Anjenaya Swamy. There is a Dhyana Mandira/Meditation Hall in the cellar of the Sai Temple. A Beautiful Statue of Sai Baba sitting in Dwarkamai Pose has been placed in the Hall. A Dim Light is kept in the hall & helps people to Meditate on Sai Baba. A Dhuni/ Fire place is placed in the Adjacent building.

Gurusthan with Neem, Kalpavriksha & Oudanbara Tree is in front of the Main temple Entrance & one can see very big tree while entering the temple complex. A Small shop selling puja Articles is in the entrance of the Temple.

There is a frequent bus service to & from Bangalore city to the temple. After visiting this temple, the next temple visited by me was the Yelahanka New Town Shirdi Sai Baba Temple. More on this in my next article.
