Shri Sai Baba stayed at Dwarkamai till the very
end of his life. Dwarkamai is situated on the right side of the
entrance of Samadhi Mandir. Here he solved problems of the people
and cured their sickness and worries. Before Baba's arrival in Shirdi,
Dwarkamai was an old mosque in a dilapidated condition. Baba turned
it into Dwarkamai and proved that God is one. The first level of
Dwarkamai has a portrait of Baba and a big stone on which Baba used
to sit. This level has two rooms. One contains the chariot and the
second a palkhi (palanquin). Just in front of the room where
the chariot is kept is a small temple. A saffron flag flies over
it. The second level of Dwarkamai has a square stool made of stone,
which Baba used for taking a bath. The main attraction of this place
is the oil painting of Shri Sai Baba sitting in a carved wooden
shrine. This level also has the grinding stone and the wooden vessel
called Kolamba in which Baba kept the Bhiksha brought from the village.
Dwarkamai also houses the Dhuni (sacred fire lighted by Shri Sai
Baba), Chul (clay stove), Bathing Stone, and Jata (Grinding Stone).
A shrine has been constructed at the place where Sri Sai Baba was
first seen as a child at the age of 16, and is called Gurusthan.
The famous "Neem Tree" can also be seen here. It is believed
that, the devotees can get what they pray for if "Udi"
and "Agarbatti" are lightened at this place, every Thursday
