It is believed that Sai Baba came to Shirdi along with a marriage procession, and stayed at this abandoned mosque, Dwarkamai, throughout his life. Situated right at the entrance of the Samadhi Mandir, Dwarkamai is home to an oil painting of Sa Baba, his alms bowl, and a few of his possessions.

Caper Travel designed a three week tour to Rajasthan and Goa for four of us in a private car during March. The driver, guides and everyone associated with the organisation were professional, reliable and punctual! We had an amazing time, made even better because of the good accomodation choices and extra additions, such as elephant and camel ride.
Thank you so much Caper for giving us a truly memorable experience of your beautiful country!
