Saibaba Temple @ Velachery

This lovely temple located outside a small primary school, is the refuge for many a parents, teachers and students !!! Of course, the people who throng here on Thursdays and Fridays for bhajans, will tell us about the heart-warming Saibaba’s idol gracing everyone.

There’s a neem tree in the open yard of this house, which is also the school. Few years back, somebody came and visited them and pronounced that a Temple will come underneath the tree.

After that a Saibaba devotee visited them and said this place is so auspicious for a Saibaba temple, as He always sat under a neem tree. He went off to Jaipur and arranged for the idol to be made and shipped to this school.

As things happened without any part of their own, this couple considered it as a divine blessing. They constructed the mandap and installed the idol.

The bhajans on Thursdays and Fridays are a soul soothing experience.

This temple is situated inside the premises of Murphy’s Primary School in Vijaynagar 3rd Main Road in Velachery.


Shirdi Selva Sai Temple

This temple is situated opposite to Mohd Sathak College on the Perumbakkam-Shollinganallur Road. A serene place where one can forget the outer world and its associated turbulances and by meditating inside in the meditation hall helps to calm the mind and make peace with the soul.

This is the image of Sai Baba, present as the presiding God inside the temple, where we cannot go and touch him.

But seen below is the Baba at the Dwarkamai, where one can hug, embrace, fall at his feet and console oneself and the problems. Here is the mother to all the children.

There is Lord Ganesha at the entrance. A coconut with the husk is considered auspicious. Get a coconut blessed from the pujari, pray, go around the Ganesha, Sai Baba and the Dhuni at the Dwarakamai 3 times and put the coconut in the dhuni.

When the desired prayer gets fulfilled, people thank Baba by doing 101 pradakshinams in the Dwarakamai.

This temple has been constructed and maintained by Mr. Sai Suresh. He built this temple as he got a vision from Baba to build a temple. All along the construction, he has faced many difficulties but all those got solved with the grace of Sai baba. The kumbabhishekam of this temple was conducted on a grand scale on 8th Feb, 2009.

Annadanam on Thursday, Pournami puja for Baba in the evening are special at this temple.
