AKKARAIPATTI SHIRDI SAI BABA

The Akkaraipatti Shirdi Sai Baba Mandir at Akkaraipatti (earlier known as Agraharapatti), is a blissful shrine located in the small peaceful village. Established and managed by Sree Sai Karpagaviruksha Trust, this serene mandir brings spiritual satisfaction to the deserving Sai devotees.

Akkaraipatti consisting of around 300 families, is surrounded by places and temples of great spiritual significance. They include Trichy, Samayapuram Sri Mariamman Temple, Srirangam Sri Aranganaathar Temple, Uthamar Kovil, Thiruvellarai Sri Pudarikatcha Permal Temple, Uraiyur Sri Vekkaliamman Temple, Thiruvanaikovil Sri Akilandeswari Temple, Rockfort or Malaikkottai Sri Ganesha Temple and Sri Thayumaanavar Temple, and Mannachanallur.

In line with the objectives of Sree Sai Karpagaviruksha Trust, the Akkaraipatti Shirdi Sai Baba temple is being constructed to cater to the spiritual needs of the deserving devotees.

When Sai Baba first came to Shirdi, He sat on a rock which had neem tree at the background, which was later called the Gurusthan. Shirdi Baba has blessed the soil of Akkaraipatti by showing us a rock and neem tree that is now the Gurusthan at Akkaraipatti.

It is heartening to note that the 3.6 foot high Akkaraipatti Shirdi Sai Baba is the tallest Gurusthan now in Tamil Nadu.
