Lakshmibai Shinde was a well to do woman. Her full name is Lakshmibai Tukaram Shinde. Bhagoji Shinde was her husband’s uncle. She used to prepare food for Baba every day. She had, during her entire life time, served Baba during day and night with utmost devotion and unswerving faith.

One may find directions to the house difficult but ask any security or shop person and they will guide. It is very near to Dwarakamayi. You can see nine coins gifted to Laxmibai by Sai baba.

This place is where one of Sai devotee Smt. Laxmibai Shinde stayed. She cooked food for Saibaba and she believes he is god. Baba gave her coins when he took his last breath.

House of lakshmibai shinde is very near to dwarakamai. Its located 50mts from dwarakamai. The opposite road leads to the spot and in that place we can see the 9 coins which was given by baba to her before his samadhi.

Laxmibai's house is accessible a few metres away from gate 3/4. Hardly, a five minute walk. You can find the 9 coins given by Baba to Laxmibai which is at display at this house.

Laxmi Bai always used to serve Sri Sai Baba with food throughout her life. She used to search for Sai Baba everywhere and serve him food. Before Sri Sai Baba left his human form, he gifted her 9 coins which can be still seen from outside of her house. Her house is near to Dwarakamai Temple
