According to the Ramdevra temple history, Ramdevji Baba, a Rajput from the Tomar Rajput family, was born in the late 14th century and is honored at Ramdevra Temple. Ramdevji gave up his materialistic existence and become a saint for serving humanity early in his life. He allegedly slew a monster and accomplished other miracles, according to legend. Baba Ramdevji attained Samadhi at the age of 33, allowing him to leave his mortal body consciously.
Maharaja Ganga Singh, King of Jodhpur and Bikaner, built the Ramdevra Temple on the exact spot where Baba took Samadhi in the early 1900s. Ramdevji was considered a reincarnation of Lord Krishna and a divine figure for the Muslim community ever since he dedicated his life to the welfare of his people.
The architecture of Ramdevra Temple combines modern with Hindu temple style influences. It is entirely constructed of brick and mortar and features a large entry gate with colorful paintings. The temple's shrine contains an idol of Ramdevji Baba and is reached through a long flight of stairs. Intricately carved silver sheets, colorful Ramdevji murals, historical photographs, and various horse replicas embellish this major temple.
