People of Haryana and Rajasthan have great devotion for Baba Rameshwar Dass. The devotees from all over India (mainly from Calcutta , Bombay , Ahemdabad , Delhi and Hyderabad and many other cities) come for having a glimpse of the' image of Baba and due to the help rendered by these devotees, this huge temple could be raised. The Baba came to this place in the beginning of 1963 and the construction work of this temple was started. The people of Bamanwas made available the land for the temple to the Baba. Thereafter, the amenities like electricity, water-supply and roads were provided.
Before the construction of this temple, Baba Rameshwar Dass had changed many places. In the initial stage he lived along with his Guru, Shri Nand Brahmehari at Shiv Kund located at the ridge of Dhosi. After the death of his Guru he constructed a temple at village Bighopur in Narnaul Sub-Division and lived there. Thereafter, the Baba came to this place (Bamanwas) and got this temple constructed.
A big fair is held annually on the occasion of Ram Navmi when lakhs of devotees from various parts of the country participate. The most peculiar feature of the temple is that no cash donations are accepted there.
