Puttaparthi Travel Guide

Puttaparthi was the home and the headquarters of the spiritual guru, Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Venerated as a reincarnation of the Shirdi Sai Baba, a mystic saint who lived in the beginning of the 20th century, this Sai Baba has a large following worldwide and is a pilgrimage centre for devotees. His ability to produce ash or 'vibhuti' out of thin air added much to the god-like stature he enjoys amongst his devotees.

Puttaparthi is located in a rocky and arid part in southwest Andhra Pradesh, quite close to the border with Karnataka. This erstwhile nondescript village where the Sai Baba was born is now equipped with schools, a state of the art health care centre, a sports complex and a university. So travel to Puttaparthi if you are a devotee of Sai Baba.

Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust is a a charitable trust that has undertaken a number of welfare activities, under Bhagawan’s guidance, in the areas of education, relief to the poor, medical relief, drinking water supply, and preservation and propagation of the rich culture and heritage of our land through construction of museums, convention centers, community halls etc.

The morning and evening Puja at Shiva Mandir should not be missed.
