It is believed that Satguru Ravidass ji has spent approximately 15 years of his life at Sarsai Village of District Junagadh of Gujarat and become famous with name Satguru Rohidass Ji. Satguru Rohidass Ashram at Sarsai Village of District Junagarh is a great place of worship for Satguru Rohidass followers. A very old temple of Satguru Ravidass (Rohidass) Ji is also here in this Ashram. In front of this temple a Yagya Hawan Kund is also present; which has an historic value. According to the old folks of Sarsai; few decades ago, there were 7 Kunds (Pool) related with Satguru Ravidass Ji. But, now only 3 Kunds are left.
One Kund is named as Shram Kund; where Satguru Ravidass ji was doing his work of Leather. Second Kund is named as Shaan Kund, which is related with story of Pandit Ganga Ram and Ganga. It is believed that King Kankan of that place became very fascinated and highly impressed by the spiritual power of Satguru Ravidass Ji; hence they became his Followers.
