People In 1917 Were Lucky In Shridhi To Meet Sai And Worship Him.
He Died Oct 15th 1918.
- ORIGIN OF THE SAMADHI MANDIR -
The Shrine which houses Babaâ€™s Samadhi was originally constructed as a Wada (large private house)
during Babaâ€™s last years in his physical body.
It is built on the land that Baba had tended as a garden. Sai Baba seemed to like growing plants
and in his early days he cleared and levelled this land, which had been used as dumping ground.
Using seeds that he had brought from Rahata, he planted it with jasmine and marigold.
For about three years Baba would water the plants every day and distribute the flowers to the local temples.
The Shrine was built by Shri Gopalrao Mukund Butty (Bapusaheb Butty), the famous multi-millionaire of Nagpur.
He was introduced to Sai Baba by a Lawyer from Nasik "Shri Sakharam Balwant Dhumal",
about ten years before Babaâ€™s Mahasamadhi.
