Saibaba devotees throng Shirdi for Ramnavami fest

Shirdi: The three-day Ramnavami festival is being celebrated with fervour at the Saibaba temple here.

As part of the celebrations, a Saibaba palkhi and procession was taken out from Dwarkamai Shri Saibaba Sansthan Trust. The 'samadhi' temple of Saibaba was illuminated and decked up for the occasion.

At least 200 palakhis from different parts of the country and lakhs of Saibaba devotees have arrived in Shirdi for the festival, sources said.

After the Aurangabad bench of the Bombay high court had given an interim stay on the government-appointed 16-member trustees on March 27, a three-member committee, headed by principal district judge Jayant Kulkarni took charge of Trust last evening.
