Dwarkamai is one of the treasures of Shirdi for the devotees. They say that Dwarkamai is the heart of Shirdi, the place where the great Sai Baba spent a significant part of his life including his last moments. It is a treasure to all of Baba's devotees because it was the home of, as they like to call him, God on Earth. People of all faiths look up to the great Sai Baba and truly believe in what he preached. The spirit of tolerance, acceptance and welcome is very much alive here.
This site, at first, was a dilapidated mosque which was covered in knee deep holes and crumbling ruins. Baba is the one that turned it into Dwarkamai and reiterated that God is one. Dwarkamai is probably the only mosque which has a temple in it! One is taken over by Sai Baba's holy energy and conferred with his blessings as soon as they step into this mosque. The striking and powerful atmosphere of positivity is so calming and tranquil that one can feel their soul being cleansed of all fears, insecurities and negativity. Once you enter Baba's home, you feel at home. You feel at peace.
What is truly interesting and worth noticing is that people from different faiths and religions come here to pay homage to Sai Baba and do that in their own way as they find comfortable. Some kneel and rest their head on the ground, some pray to the 'dhuni' which is the perpetually burning sacred fire and some read their 'japas' or read from sacred texts. This reinforces that people have taken to Baba's teachings and practice the belief that God is one.
