    I am traveling from Delhi to Shirdi with family to visit the Sai Baba Mandir. I believe that Nasik is close to Shirdi and I would love to go Nasik to the famous temple there but would like to know the exact road distance from Shirdi to Nasik, so I can make further plans if we decide to go Nasik.

    If known can someone give a rough idea of what the bus cost would be traveling from Shirdi to Nasik.
