The Meher Pilgrim Retreat is an accommodation facility provided by the Avatar Meher Baba Trust for people visiting Meherabad. Men and women are housed separately. Initial bookings are made for up to two weeks. Space permitting, your stay may be extended. (During busy times, other pilgrim facilities at Meherabad are used for those whose M.P.R. stay cannot be extended.)

Open June 15 to mid March, the facility provides three meals and tea, towels and bedding, and a solar heating system for showers and baths. Meher Baba's tomb is about a 15 minute walk away. Rickshaws and buses are available for transport to Lower Meherabad, downtown Ahmednagar, and Meherazad.

The Pilgrim Retreat serves only vegetarian food; meat and fish cannot be stored or consumed on the premises. Illicit drugs and alcoholic beverages are also not allowed, and guests are expected to have given up illicit drug use entirely.

Note: Anyone with a child under seven years of age cannot be accommodated at Meherabad and will have to make arrangements to stay elsewhere in Ahmednagar.
