Meherazad (English:"Mercy is free") was the last residence of the Indian spiritual teacher Meher Baba and is today a place of spiritual pilgrimage outside Pimpalgaon village, approximately 9 mi north of Ahmednagar, India. More accurately, it is located at Template:Coord. Meherazad estate comprises about 5 acre.

Meher Baba lived at Meherazad from 1944 until his death in 1969.[1] The complex features buildings, gardens and vehicles pertaining mostly to Baba’s later phases. Of special interest are Baba’s Room, Meherazad Gardens, Mandali Hall, the Blue Bus (that Baba travelled in with his women disciples in 1938-39), and the New Life Caravan. Seclusion Hill, where Baba did much work, rises behind Meherazad.[2]

Meherazad remains a private residence. Some of Meher Baba's surviving mandali lived there until middle of 2012. It is open to visitors on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm, and Sundays from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm.[3] In 1991 Meherazad was incorporated into the Avatar Meher Baba Trust.
