Ramdevra (Hindi: रामदेवरा) is a village situated about 12 km to the north of Pokhran in Jaisalmer district of Rajasthan in India.

As of 2011 the village has a population of 1499, of which 788 are males and 711 are females.[1]

Origin of name[edit]

The village is named after Baba Ramdevji, a Tanwar Rajput and a saint who took Samādhi in 1384 CE, at the age of 33 years. Ramdevji Maharaj took samadhi (conscious exit from the mortal body) in 1459 AD. Maharaja Ganga Singh of Bikaner constructed a temple around the samadhi in 1931 AD.

Geography[edit]

Near the village, there is a tank known as Ramsagar Talab which is believed to have been constructed by Baba Ramdevji himself.

A large step well, the Parcha Bavori is also situated nearby.

Fair[edit]

A large fair known as Ramdevera Fair is held here from Bhado Sudi 2 to Bhado Sudi 10 (Aug - Sept). It is attended by a large number of devotees who come in large groups from far and wide. Irrespective of their caste, creed or religious affiliations, these devotees throng the shrine dedicated to the saint. These groups organize night long singing of bhajans and kirtans to pay homage to Baba.

The birthplace of Baba is situated nearly 150 km from Ramdevra between Ramderiya Undu and Kashmir of Barmer district.
