Surajpal, who runs a satsang known as Bhole Baba, has his main ashram in Bahadurnagar village in Patiali, Kasganj district, but he has several ashrams in other cities as well. Agra also has one such ashram or house.

Agra has a special association with Sakar Vishwa Hari Bhole Baba. He has a house in Kedar Nagar Colony D Block of Shahganj in the city. In which once lived Surajpal alias Bhole Baba. A few years ago huge crowds of Baba’s devotees thronged to have his darshan, now the place is locked. Even so, even today his disciples prostrate when passing in front of this closed building.

20 years ago there was a crowd of disciples

According to the locals, Baba used to meet his disciples in this house two decades ago, but the place has been locked for a long time now. His disciples have deep faith in Baba. Even today, every day from 4 am to evening, Baba’s disciples come to have darshan in the closed house. Women also do the maintenance and cleaning of the platform built in front of the house. Many devout women clean the pallu of the saree with devotion and bow their heads. Baba used to call this house a hut. He used to call his disciples here and discuss the gathering with them.

Local people said that when Baba’s fame gradually increased, he moved from here to his ancestral village Etah Bahadur Nagar and built an ashram there. Aarti Verma, who lives nearby, said that Baba’s hut has been closed for the past 20 years. Baba and his wife Mataji came to this hut only once when he saw them. A large number of people come here for darshan. The lock is closed, but people come out to worship. Local woman Nisha Dubey said Tuesdays and Thursdays are very crowded.
