Baba Ramdevji

Baba Ramdevji (Also Called as Swami Ramdevji) is a folk–deity of Rajasthan in India.Swami Ramdev ji was a saint of the fifteenth century who devoted all his life to the uplift of the downtrodden. Around Swami Ramdev ji's grave a magnificent temple was built by Maharaja Ganga Singh of Bikaner in 1931 A.D.

Situated about 12 kilometres to the north of Pokhran, is the village of Ramdevra known after Baba Ramdev. It is here he underwent Samadhi (conscious exit from the mortal body) in 1458 AD by burying himself alive. Samadhi, i.e. the voluntary abandonment of mortal body is a commendable custom for the holy figures in Hindu traditions. Ramdeora fair is held every year for ten days, Bhaadra Sudi 2 to Bhaadra Sudi 11, in August-September to pay homage to the saint. Ramdeora village is in Jaisalmer district of Rajasthan.
