About SHITAL ( Shirdi Sai Baba Temple Association of London)

Shirdi Sai Baba Temple association of London (SHITAL) is a registered charity formed on 23rd April 2009. The objective of SHITAL is to promote spiritual knowledge for the benefit of the public in accordance with the teachings of Shree Shirdi Sai Baba. SHITAL aims to become a platform to spread the holly messages and teachings of Shree Shirdi Sai Baba to every corner of the UK and Europe through establishing temples, and community centres, holding prayer meetings, lectures, public celebrations of religious festivals, distributing literatures on Shree Shirdi Sai Baba and assisting those in charitable needs.

  • We endeavour that within five kilometres of any SHITAL temple and centre, no one goes hungry; as was the practice Sai Baba followed when He was physically present in Shirdi.
  • Following Baba’s teachings, all donations received have been invested back in the community
