The parna-sala in which the picture of Baba was originally installed in 1942 is now a mandap with a concrete roofed prakaram with marble floorings. The marble statue of the deity, Sri Sai Baba was installed by Sri Sathya Sai Baba on the 26th day of February 1961. This was the first occasion on which Sathya Sai Baba was installing for daily worship an idol of Shirdi Sai Baba. The popularity of Sri Naga Sai began to spread far and wide and thousands began to visit the holy shrine.
