Address: Near Pune Railway Station , Pune, 411001

Year & Date: 25-2-1894

 

 Significance:

 

Meher Baba was born in ward no.33 (maternity ward), on ground floor, opposite mortuary, Sasoon hospital on 25th February 1894. Later on, a marble plaque was placed on the wall of this ward on which the following words were inscribed, "In this ward, the deliverer of the world was delivered to the world on 25-02-1894". Later in 2009 the entire building, including the ward, was demolished to make way for a multistoried hospital building in that place. The old ground floor will now be a parking lot. Honoring the sentiments of Baba lovers, the Government of Maharashtra has allotted equivalent space on the same spot, on the first floor where a Baba memorial will now be build and on the ground floor parking lot, where the plaque will now be relocated.
