Lendi Baug

History

Situated in Shirdi, at a few distance from Gurusthan, the Lendi Baug is a place of great religious importance. Built and watered daily by Sai Baba himself, the baug got its name from a drain named “Lendi”, which used to formerly flow there.

It is said that Sai Baba used to visit the place each morning and afternoon and relax under a Neem tree located here. Sai Baba also dug a 2 feet deep pit under that tree, and kept back a ‘deep’ (earthen lamp) lit in that pit for some reason. Therefore, an octangular ‘deepgriha’ known as ‘Nanda Deep’ has also been constructed there in marble stone, to commemorate the reminiscence of this place. The deep still constantly burns in a glass box kept there.

There is a Peepal tree on one side of the deepgriha and a Neem tree on the other side. Situated at a short distance is the Datta Mandir below an Audumbar tree with a marble statue of Datta. The statue of Datta was inaugurated on 6th December, 1976, just behind which is the Samadhi of the horse, Shyamsundar that belonged to Baba. Lendi Baug also houses a sacred well which was dug by Baba and his devotees during earlier times.

Best time to visit

Lendi Baug can be visited anytime of the year as its piousness remains intact all round the year. However, June to August is the best time to visit Lendi Baug as the weather in Shirdi remains pleasant.
