Chennai to Shirdi Distance - 1200 Kms ( approx )

Chennai to Pune by train and from Pune to shirdi by bus

The best way is take any train which goes to Mumbai via Pune. Get down in Pune railway station, ask for Shivaji Nagar bus stand. From here there are various Bus to Shirdi. If you dont get shirdi bus, please go to Ahmadnagar and from there to shirdi. This is the safe way for women , children and old people.

Short Cut - if you feel secured , Try to get down in Daund station and travel to Ahmadnagar by bus  :

You can get down in a station called Daund which comes a couple of hours before Pune station, This is a small train junction. Once you get down in daund , walk out of the railway station, there will be few autos…ask them to take you to the junction where 3 roads meet. This is where Ahmadnagar and shirdi bus comes.

The auto takes just 10 minutes to reach this point where three roads meet. You have to wait in the corner and look for Nagar bus ( Ahmadnagar ) which takes you to Ahmadnagar bus stand. From Ahmadnagar there are frequent Bus to Manmad which stops in shirdi or direct Shirdi Bus.

Return Journey - Three ways to return from Shirdi to chennai
 
Shirdi to Chennai : Trains returning back from shirdi


Bus from Shirdi to Pune :
You always have option to return from Shirdi by bus to Pune ( 6 hour journey ) and catch your train from pune to chennai , bangalore ,hyderabad or any destination as per your needs. There are also frequent Bus to Mumbai ( 8 hour journey ) incase you wish to return by Air or have booked a return train from Mumbai. Its always good to take return journey from Pune as its nearest destination. Similarly you can also reach pune by train from any place and take bus to shirdi.
There are also bus to Bangalore and Hyderabad but this is long distance and not at all advicable for few people.
Be clear about this info : There are very good Bus frequency from Shirdi to Pune and also Shirdi to Mumbai. The charges will be around 200 to 400 rupees . Do not think you must only go by train to pune to catch the return train. If you plan to stay in shirdi for more than a day, as soon as you reach shirdi, get bus tickets from any travels in shirdi back to pune for your day of return. Its a 6 hour journey from shirdi to pune. So to catch night train you can start from shirdi around 2 or 3 in the afternoon and reach pune by night 10 - 11 o clock. Have your dinner in any hotels opposite to railway station and wait for your train.
In any case we have provided the option to travel by train itself to pune also.

1. Train Number : 1334 - Shirdi fast passenger - Departure at evening 17: 20 from Kopergoan , reaches Pune at 23 :00 night.
wait in Pune railway station for few minutes.....to take next train
Train Number 2163 ( Chennai Express ) starts at At 00.10 ( 12.10 mid night ) from Pune and reaches Chennai at 19.30 ( Next day evening )
Important : be very careful when you book tickets in above trains : If you book for shirdi to pune for example on date 1st of the month, then you must book ticket for train number 2163 dated 2nd of that month because it starts after 12 o clock at night , so it becomes next day )
 
_________________________Option 2 for return journey to chennai__________________

Wait for few hours in pune railways station.......

We travelled to Shirdi from Chennai with Vasantkamal tours, by flight they took a great care of us through out the tour, air tickets, food, accommodation was all provided by them.
They also send their staff for us with Darshan so there was no need of any confusion & worry, undoubtedly it was a great experience.
