Ramdevra a village in Jaisalmer very near to the famous Pokhran is named after Baba Ramdevji, a Tanwar Rajput and a saint who took Samādhi in 1384 CE, at the age of 33 years. He is worshiped today by many social groups of India as Ishta-deva. Hindus consider the Baba to be a reincarnation of Lard Krishna. For Muslims, he is a revered figure as the five Pirs from Mecca came to test his powers and went convinced of his divinity.
