A humble initiative which was the earnest desire of few likeminded people residing in Venkateshwara Nagar colony in Meerpet , Moulali in the early Nineties with a Photograph of Sri Shiridi Sai Baba over a period of time became a prominent Shrine of Baba. In the words of one of the Founder Trustee K. Thiagaraj “ During the late eighties most of the families who worship Sai Baba Used to go to Malkajgiri Sai Baba Temple which is quite far seeing their fervent devotion towards the Lord we mustered local support through Sri Raji Reddy who was Muncipal Chairman who allotted a piece of Land adjacent to a abandoned well” he added that with the blessings of the lord the group of Trustees registered it as Shiridi Sai Samsthan Trust and a good Samaritan Sri Ravi Kumar who happens to be a Real Estate Developer Donated the Idol of Sri Saibaba which is in a seated position ordered to make from Jaipur(Rajasthan) and formally idol was installed in 1992 from then the Trust has undertaken various developmental activities under the aegis of the Temple.
Today the temple has a Spacious Dhyana Mandir in which devotional meets are organized and during the other times its given on hire for events like marriages and the revenue is routed to meet the maintenance costs of the Temple. Apart from the devotional activities every day the Saibaba Samsthan Trust engages in lot of charity work which Is noteworthy according to the Treasurer “ On the eve of Gurupournami every year the trust bears the fee of needy children to meet their educational costs as part of our Vidyadhanam Program” likewise the Trust engages in Annadanam on a weekly basis where all the visitors are provided meals and at regular intervals Eye camps are conducted with the support of Lions Club and free spectacles are given to the poor.
