Meherabad consists of 2 main areas, the area near the main road and railway line is called Lower Meherabad and the area on top of Meherabad Hill is called Upper Meherabad.

There are web pages for these locations, select from the "Locations" menu.

In most cases, Meher Baba had decided where everyone was to be interred.

The above maps  were featured in the "Meherabad Walking Tour" guide by Peter & Debbie Nordeen. Map by permission of Avatar Meher Baba Trust. The artwork was by Glenn Magrini, colour rendering by Anthony Zois.

The graves of Meher Baba's closest females followers / mandali including His pets are principally located at Upper Meherabad next to Meher Baba's Samadhi-Tomb, at either side and also nearby, which also has a memorial for His parents.

 

At Lower Meherabad, the graves of his closest men followers / mandali are located, including nearby at the Memorial Tower which has two graves within that area.

 

There is a grave at the Meherazad property.

 

I would like to thank all the people who contributed for the images herein which have been collected over the years. I valued Eric Teperman also Peter & Debbie Nordeen's input in this project. Many of the photographers I have no knowledge who they are but one person who provided the bulk of the great grave markers has been Mark Trichka who photographed the complete set of markers in early 2020 on his recent visit to India with his wife Lisa Brande.
