Earlier this year, the image of Sai Baba could be seen on the wall of Dwarkamai in Shirdi Sai Temple, said devotees. According to reports, Sai Baba's image was seen on the wall for about three hours. The followers at the temple said that Sai Baba could be seen smiling in the image which was 2x2 feet in size. The image was also shown by certain news channels.

Devotees head to Shirdi Sai Baba Temple in large numbers. Many stay overnight to witness the early morning 'Kakad Aarti'. Known as a 'Fakir', Sai Baba first made his appearance in Shirdi as a youth and remained there throughout his life, devoting his life in the service of people.
