About the Temple
Sri Ramdevji TempleAmong revered shrines of Rajasthan one temple that is remarkable for the number of pilgrims it attracts, is Sri Ramdevji Temple. The temple located in Ramdevra in Runicha near Pokran in Jaisalmer district and was built by Maharaja Ganga Singh of Bikaner around the samadhi of Baba Ramdev. Babaji was a great saint of the village who believed in equality of human beings. Ramdev was born in Tanwar village to a Rajput family and did not observe any social stratification based on caste, class creed or sect. For him everyone was equal. In the year 1458 he took samadhi. The enthralling devotional activities at the temple are worth seeing. Visit the temple during August – September and you see a different side of the temple much more active, much more exhilarated and busy. Beautiful Architecture
The shrine is not an architectural wonder as such nevertheless it is attractive. The cenotaph of Ramdevji is placed at the core of the temple campus. To the north, is the head and to the south are the feet of Ramdevji. The tombs of other family members of Ramdevji can also be found here. The temple has a brightly colored facade. The temple is dotted with statues of horses featuring two life sized silver horses with fine repoussé work. The horses are to commemorate the horse of Ramdev who accompanied him when he visited villages to cure the people and serve humanity. There are extensively caparisoned wooden horses at the temple decorated with fine embroidered silk cloths.
