The Sai Baba Temple Ajmer is spread across approximately two acres. Located at Ajay Nagar in Ajmer, the temple was built in 1999 by Suresh K Lal. It has been built using the modern architectural style and has become a must-visit destination for all Sai Baba devotees and casual visitors who seek peace. The most intriguing part of the temple is that it was built using marble in its purest form. This allows light to pass through it, thereby illuminating the entire temple space. The translucent marble stone is not only spectacular to look at but also helps always to keep the temple interior bright.

The Sai Baba temple is a breathtaking example of simplicity and grandeur’s perfect combination. The statue of Sai Baba is made of marble with exquisite detailing that makes it look realistic. He wears a crown that has ‘om’ written on it in Hindi. The throne on which the revered Sai Baba sits is made of gold with intricate detailing of floral motifs, peacocks, and nature. It also features lions and ‘om’ written in Hindi. The spacious temple hall allows people to worship, sit silently, and look at the various marvels within the temple.
