    Hello, @Niketan, welcome to the forum!


    Overview

    The distance between Mumbai and Shirdi is about 260 kilometres, which can take around 5 to 6 hours of driving to cover. With train journey, the travel time can be longer, even reaching 12 hours at the most. Shirdi has its own railway station by the name of the Sainagar Shirdi Railway Station, which is just under three kilometres away from the Shirdi Sai Baba Mandir. This is usually the main railway station that pilgrims use to reach the Shirdi Sai Baba Mandir from other cities, like Mumbai. There is an alternative railway station though, would be discussed more later on this guide, that you can also utilise, since the trains that run between Mumbai and the Sainagar Shirdi Railway Station are quite few.
