The Nimbar or the niche is a standard feature in all mosques, and usually faces the direction of Holy Mecca. Shirdi Baba used to light lamps near the Nimbar in Dwarakamayee. Garlands decorate the Nimbar. Sri Sai Satcharitra narrates that this is the very divine spot where Shirdi Baba used to have his midday meal with his back resting on the Nimbar. Baba would also sleep with his head pointing to the Nimbar. Baba would occasionally perform Namaz [Moslem prayers] near the Nimbar.
