Bagdana temple provides free food and Dharamshala for Night hold.
There are three major mela (folkloric fairs) organized here annually, on the death anniversary of Bajrandas Bapa, Bhadrapad Amavasya, and Guru Purnima.
Bajrangdas Bapa was born in Adhewada village near Bhavnagar and achieved total spirituality at an early age. Bapa Sitaram spent some years visiting different places like Ayodhya, Surat, Palitana, and the Nashik Kumbh Mela. He came to Bagdana in 1941 and began living in a small Madhuli. In 1951 He built the ashram, which developed over the years.
History of Bajarangdas Bapa
In 1906, Bajrangdas Bapa was born at the zanjariaya Hanuman Mandir. Shiwar kuwarbai was Bapa’s mother and Hiradas was his father. It is situated in a small village that is known as Adhe Wada, which is located in Bhavnagar. While he was born, his parents named him Bhaktiram.
In 1915 Bajrangdas Bapa first attended the famous Nashik Kumbh Mela together with his spiritual leader Shri Mahant. Bapa completed his chief sadhana near the renowned Mandakini River, which was located at the Chitrakut Mountain.
One of the most significant facts is that he achieved the yog sidh while he was only 28 years old. His Guru or spiritual leader suggested he carry on his own mythological voyage and named him Bajarangdasji.
While he was near about 30, he went for the Himalaya yatra, as well as inhabited in a number of places like Kaanan Vistar, Mumbai, Surat Laxmi Mandir, Bhavnagar, Dholera, Warungu Bay’s Hanumanji place, Palitana, Bagdana, and Karmodar.
A lot of people stated that he did many miracles all the way through his mythological journey. However, it is also true that Bapa never took any credit for his excellence.
Throughout his journey in Mumbai with his spiritual leader Shri Sitaramdasji, he made a miracle, which was truly unbelievable as well as barely credible. At that time, there was a deficiency of drinking water, and for that reason, people were drinking only salty seawater. But, Baba started digging, and after a few hours pure water came there, and everyone got stunned.
Then, all people started to drink that water. The great man left the earth at 5 am on 9th January 1977 at the Bagdana Ashram’s Madhuli.
