By grace of Shirdi Sai baba and Goddess Durga we went on a pilgrimage to temples in Kumbakoram and Mayiladuthurai in Tamilnadu,India. Five of us who serve in Nagasai mandhir in coimbatore like cleaning, sweeping, distributing annadhan, Digging dhuni and filtering Udi were exited to see this beautiful simple and truly wonderful Shirdi Sai baba temple situated between Kumbakonam and Mayiladuthurai. There are town buses going from Kumbakonam to Kadhiramangalam . Confirm if the bus stops in Shivaramapuram which comes 3-4 kms ahead of Kadhiramangalam or get auto from Kadhiramangalam.
The best part of our pilgrimage to Kumbakonam temples is that we stayed on a holy pournami – Full moon day night in the shirdi sai baba temple in shivaramapuram village.

Locating the ShivaramaPuram shirdi Sai baba temple :
The temple is built by contribution from my close sai family , Mr.Mohanji and Renuka and taken care by the priest Mr.Veeraraghavan . Lets also a Pancha muga Aanchaneyar in this temple. The temple is not easy to locate as its in a small village called Shivaramapuram. If you are going to Thanjavur , Kumbakonam temples for pilgrimage and happen to travel from Kumbakonam to Mayiladuthurai, Try to locate this temple in the mainroad between Kumbakonam and Mayiladuthurai .
Its easy to locate this temple if you are travelling by own vehicle or taxi. After crossing Thiruvidaimaruvur and Aduthurai continue your jouney for another 8-9 kms. A small village called Kadhiramangalam appears after which you can ask for exact location of Shivaramapuram village. From the road you must try to locate the gopuram of this saibaba temple and take the narrow path which leads you to Sai baba of Shirdi.
To avoid confusion, let me confirm, There seems to be a Shirdi Sai baba temple in kumbakonam town itself and this images you see are from “Shivaramapuram temple ” a very small temple located in a scenic greenish village on way from Kumbakonam to Mayiladuthurai.
I would like to present few beautiful Shirdi Sai baba photos from the temple :
Holy paadhukas of Shirdi Sai baba kept in the entrance of Shirdi Sai baba temple :

A small simple sweet Saibaba temple
Shivaramapuram Village – Shirdi Sai baba temple
This is what i call as being simple as sai himself. Less than 5 to 10 devotees can actually stand infront of saibaba in this temple. Few steps leads to the temple as if taking us to the the paraside of Saibaba. There are many who build shirdi sai baba temples now a days. What matters is how sacredly and devotedly the pooja and the dicipline is carried out in the temple with out ego from people who maintain temple.
No one was present when the priest Mr.Veeraraghavan started the Morning kakad aarti but i could feel his devotion on sai and his sincerity in doing the aarti on time. I took bath fastly in the bore pipe and ran to join him …He invited me inside the temple and for first time in my life, i showed the panchaarti , the five wick lamps ..
Simply Gorgerous Saibaba.
All of us from nagasai mandhir enjoyed this kumbakonam trip since we happily spent many hours in this peaceful Shirdi Sai baba temple . The shivaramapuram village seems to be choosen by sai to remain there forever and bless devotees whole heartedly.
Lets surrender in the Holy feets of Saint Shirdi Sai Baba :
Om sri sainathaya namaha
