COOL DARSHAN OF SAI BABA @ SHIRDI
28th March`2011 Be it Scorching Hot, Drenched Rainy or Freezing Cold, irrespective of the weather, on an average, around 50,000 people visit the Sai Baba Temple @ Shirdi every day and on weekends, the figure touches approximately 70,000. During Summers the temperature in Shirdi often exceeds 45 degree Celsius. Thus, keeping in mind the relentless summers @ Shirdi and in a bid to make the pilgrimage at Shirdi's Sai Baba Temple a more comfortable experience, the Shirdi Sai Sansthan Trust will be installing Air-Conditioners inside the entire Temple within the next three months. Shri.Jayant Sasane, President of the Trust said that they had completed the entire survey and the cost of Air-Conditioning the Temple's interior would come around approximately Rs 3.5 crore. The Sai Trust wants to complete this project as soon as possible, so as to provide relief to devotees in summer and ventilate the Shrine in a better manner. When asked about the need of having such Commercial facilities in & around the Temple town, the chief executive officer of Shirdi Sai Trust Shri.Kishore More said, “There are no facilities for entertainment in Shirdi. The amphitheatre, IMAX theatre will be a centre of attraction for visitors.” He added that the amphitheatre would have a seating capacity for 5,000 people. There will be three water screens for the Laser shows. "Sai Shrushti" - another project worth Rs.50 crore, depicting Sai Baba's life is coming up on a 30-acre plot. It has been designed by director of the trust Shri.Nitin Desai. The Shrusthi village will have scenes depicting Sai Baba's life in Shirdi.
