Tuesday 07th December, 2010

Many Sai devotees from India and Abroad who come to Shirdi for Baba's Darshan would also simultaneously like to learn more about Baba's Life. The average devotee lacks information and details about their revered Saint. The existing Sai Museum near Dixit Wada provides some information. It houses objects that were used by Baba, along with some artistic renderings of events from his life. Constrained by space, this is all that is possible in this location.

So for the benefit of the devotees, the Shirdi Sai Sansthan has planned a special Hi-tech Spiritual Theme Park wherein the Story of Sai Baba’s Life as mentioned in the Shri Sai Satcharitra will be depicted, using the interactive medium of various Multi-media/Visual Techniques.

Approx 20 acres of land at Nimgaon-Korhale (Maharashtra) has been chosen for this Sai Garden Complex which will be around 1km West-side from the Shirdi Sai Temple. Around 6 acres of land will be reserved for full fledged Car Parking.


Starting in next 2 months, this project costing approx Rs.95 crores will be completed in around a years time. Shirdi Sansthan's Spiritual Theme Park - a Hi-tech Sai Garden is going to be India's Biggest and the First of its kind. It is going to be an integrated Eco-Spiritual Theme Park with Entertainment and Spiritual components and will function as the "Shri Sai Baba Garden Complex". A shuttle bus service might also be operated from this New complex to the original Sai Temple Complex.

The entire land shall be planned as a landscaped park in which people can sit around in a serene environment. A central feature of this park shall be a dedicated Sai Baba Museum & Information Centre. Here, the exhibits and display material will bring to life the events as recorded in the manuscripts and books written on Shri Sai Baba. Audio Playbacks shall also narrate the episodes that are on display.

Another major attraction within this Park would be a 3d Larger-than-Life Illuminated Holographic Projection of Sai Baba's Image. The Park will have an Amphitheater, spaces for Sculptures, a Meditation Garden, a Music Garden & would be also used as an area for all spiritual discussions, discourses etc.

It will have the India's biggest Laser show and that even a 4D Laser Show. The Laser Beams Show will depict the events from Shri Sai Satcharitra in such a manner as if actually happening. The devotees will feel as if Sai Baba is actually walking in-front of them. Each Laser show would be 40-minutes long and the tickets would be priced at approx Rs.75/- each.
