Golden Chariot at Sai Sansthan Shirdi
Sai Baba took his First ride on Golden Chariot on Guru Poornima 2010. Here are few pics of Golden Chariot kept at Samadhi Mandir for Puja. Later on at evening Sai Baba’s FIRST PALKI in the GOLDEN RATH YATRA was taken out in Shirdi.
Apart from Baba’s Traditional Wooden Chariot (Rath) which is now converted into Gold, the Shirdi Sansthan possesses one another old Wooden Chariot (Rath) also, which it had planned to auction away on Gurupurnima itself but on strong objections by devotees, the Sansthan had to cancel the Auctioning off. Reasons attributed by the devotee’s were that when the Sansthan is not short of Money or Space to keep the Chariot, then why were they Auctioning away Baba’s items.
