According to the belief, the Shivling of Ratneshwar Nath Dham temple was established five hundred years ago by the Shivling Khoji group of sadhus.

It is said that earlier there used to be light of Nagmani in the temple premises. Shivling was obtained by excavating this place. Hence the name of this Dham was named as Ratneshwar Nath Dham.
