Tourists coming to Chennai should definitely plan a trip to the Shirdi Sai Baba Temple located in the Mylapore area of Chennai. This temple was built in the year 1952 by 3 individuals who were devotees of Sai Baba, 2 of whom were named Narasimhaswami and Salim, but the third devotee’s name remains unknown. This construction was financed by a merchant from Chettiar, as a commemoration for Sai Baba himself. Today this temple is also the site of the headquarters of the All India Sai Baba Samaj, an organization dedicated to preserving and following his teachings. The primary teaching which is imparted in this temple is not a religion defined by boundaries, but one of hope, love and understanding. The teachings of Sai Baba promoted harmony between all the different religions like Hindus and Muslims, encouraging them to put their communal difference aside. The mystery regarding the origins and religion of Sai Baba helped bring them together.
