History

Baba Ramdev was well-known for certain magical, gifted powers, which led to his fame. Slowly and slowly he became very popular about his powers and gifted traits. Because of this five saints came from Mecca to test and verify his powers and if all that is said about him was true. After all the possible examination when they were convinced, they indeed paid homage to him. There is also a well in the same area which is supposed to have been built by Baba Ramdev himself. The local villagers consider the water of this well to be sacred and holy.
In 1931, the Maharaja of Bikaner, constructed a temple around the “Samadhi”.
