A beautiful portrait of Baba was installed, inside the small temple during Baba’s lifetime. Arati was done twice a day by Bapu Saheb Jog. This was later discontinued on Baba’s advice. This photo is noteworthy for giving Sakshatkar and darshan of the Ishta Devata to many devotees. Alankar is done by the Pujari daily and bhog is offered in the evening.
This oil portrait of Shri Sai Baba was done by Shyam Rao Jayakar in those days when Baba was living in Dhwarkamai. When the inspired artist showed this work to Him, Baba held the portrait to His Heart and is reported to have said, "This picture will live after me"
