Ramdevji Temple

ramdev

Baba Ramdevji is a folk-deity of Rajasthan in India. He was a saint of the fourteenth century who devoted his life to the upliftment of the downtrodden. Ramdevji was a Tanwar Rajput. While Hindus regard him as an incarnation of Lord Krishna, Muslims venerate him as Ramshah Pir.  

Baba Ramdevji believed in the equality of all human beings, be they high or low, rich or poor. He helped the down-trodden by granting them their wishes. Baba Ramdev is often depicted on horseback. His worship crosses the Hindu-Muslim divide as well as the distinctions of caste. His followers include caste Hindus and the Dalits in modern-day Rajasthan, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh, Mumbai, Delhi and also in Sindh in Pakistan. 

Ramdevji Temple is located in a village known as Ramdevra which is a about 12 km to the north of Pokhran in Jaisalmer district of Rajasthan in India. The village is named after Baba Ramdevji took Samādhi in 1459 AD. Maharaja Ganga Singh of Bikaner constructed a temple around the samadhi in 1931 AD.
