Background: In the year 1980 the land of Shridhammath was purchased by
Shri Jairamdasji Maharaj .The Math was build by the help and

Sita and Laxman are the main deities in the temple. Shrimaharajji
dedicated all the property of the temple to the dirties and
preferred to work as Sarvaharakar, that is the caretaker
according to the religious tradition of Ayodhya Sarvarahkar is
works only as the head and the caretaker and he does not have
the power to sell the property , that comes under the temple . He
has the authority to appoint new Sarvarahkar when the time
comes. Shri Jairamdasji Swamiji considered Swamiji
Raghavacharyaji as the suitable person to bear the responsibility
of Sarvarahkar and appointed him to that position in the year
